If you check out saveoncrafts.com you can buy spools of burlap for pretty cheap and could stencil & paint it yourself ๐Ÿ™‚

It does cost more to buy or make burlap runners, but they are two different looks.

To make:

-do a search here on WeddingBee to find the less expensive sources for fabric. I’m not sure if the pp was referring to table runners or floor runners, but most table runners I have seen are not painted or stencilled, although  anything is possible.

– there are tutorials both here and on other online sites.


To buy:

-check out http://www.recycledbride.com

– check Craigslist- you can check all the Craigslist sites at the same time by going to http://www.google.com      then enter    site:craigslist.com

then add what you are looking for,in this case, burlap runners

Here is that search for current listings:

I am making my own and bought 20 yards of burlap at Joanns for about $50.  That will give me enough to make at least 8 runners and a crazy tablecloth I am making

I made my own.  I bought 30 yards of this fabric, which, if I remember correctly, was wide enough to make 2 runners from 3 yards: http://www.onlinefabricstore.net/burlap/40-inch-7-oz-natural-burlap-.htm?TID=c1ecabcae3554a6a96c56b7dd6672fb3.  So 30 yards was enough to make 10 108″ runners, 6 40″ runners (for the cocktail and smaller tables), and we had a ton extra to drape behind the sweetheart table.  It was actually pretty easy to make it all too.  I think it took like 2 days to cut it and hem the edges with my sewing machine.  

Edit to add:  Shipping for the 30 yards of fabric was less than $10, so I think I spent a total of $45 on 30 yards of fabric.  It was a better deal than I could find anywhere else, so you should check it out!

Just be careful with buying your own burlap!  I had originally thought of using burlap, but most burlap that I found was really cheap looking.  I actually went to a wedding where the bride used it as well, and all of the ends were fraying.  It looked terrible.  Good luck though, I love the look of burlap!

Burlap runners were SUCH a perfect addition to my wedding.  We did everything really neutral but incorporated texture.  My mother and I searched everywhere and thought about so many different options before settling on these runners attached.  They weren’t actually burlap – because burlap is stinky!  And no one wants the stink of burlap next to their food when they’re eating.  These were store bought – but my mom tweaked them accordingly to the table sizes.  These were for 60″ rounds…

I have at least 10 for sale… $10 each if you’re interested!  Message me ๐Ÿ™‚
