. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Burlap & Lace Table Runner

Burlap & Lace Table Runner

 

This last weekend, thanks to Chris spending lots of time playing with Addilyn, I got to spend some good time crafting.  I made this burlap and lace table runner and love how it turned out! I already had the burlap and only spent $5 on the lace, so super cheap project.  


I cut the burlap (which is actually the hardest part and I failed to make it perfectly straight) and then I pinned the lace to all four sides and sewed it.  

I used freezer paper to cut out a letter V and taped it down to the burlap.  Then painted with a sponge brush and peeled the paper off once it dried. 


For the mason jars I just put a large amount of paint in the bottom of the jars and swirled them around.  Then turned them upside down and let them dry.  I had to add a little paint to a few places and swirl some more but most of it got covered on its own!  I got these cute burlap flowers from Hobby Lobby.  


I love my new dining room table and it makes me feel like I am a tiny bit closer to Spring!


I tend to get a little overboard when I like something, (like baby footprints for everything) and made another burlap initial craft.  I will have to share whenever I get to taking pictures of it!

This is adorable! How creative! I tried to do something similar in my own dining room with lace doilies and flowers, but it's still a work in progress. :)

So cute! You are incredibly crafty!! I wish I had the patience for it. I'm just too much of a perfectionist. The last thing I made was the tassel garland for my mantle and the only reason I didn't tear it up was because it is up so high that you can't really see how bad it looks! Haha!!
