Easy Burlap Holiday Table Runner

November 30, 2009

I just made this super easy table runner from some burlap I had lurking in my craft closet. If your table is round, is it still called a table runner? Maybe a table circle? Hmmm..

I cut my burlap into a circle the size I wanted.

I sketched out some holly leaves and berries on freezer paper and stenciled them on 5 places around the perimeter. For an easy freezer paper stencil tutorial, click here.

Easy and cute!
