Hello Ribbon Retreat readers! I am so excited to be here! My name is Bev and I blog over at Flamingo Toes.

I have a fun and super easy project for you today! This sweet Lace and Burlap Runner is a perfect addition to your Fall table – it’s nice and neutral and has pretty little ruffles on each end that you can customize to match your colors and decor!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Runner!

Burlap Runner – or burlap fabric 11″ wide by the length you want for your table – mine is 66″ long
4 different types of lace, 2 yards each
Pom Pom Trim – 4 yards
Fabric for ruffles – you need 2 pieces 22″ x 4″ and 2 pieces 22″ x 6″

Picot Edge Lace Dainty Lace Vintage Lace Flora Lace White Pom Pom

Begin by cutting your burlap to the length you want. These purchased runners are sold lots of places and are super easy to use. The ends are finished so there’s a lot less mess!

Lay out your lace in the order you want and begin sewing it on. Mine are spaced about 1 1/2″ apart.

Tip: You can use Washi Tape as a guide for your edges. This will keep your lace nice and straight.

Continue until all your lace strips are sewn on.

For the pom pom trim, lay the trim under the edge of the runner and sew in place down each long side.

Now if you don’t want to do the ruffles you can finish off your runner here – it’s so pretty already! All you’d need to do is sew under each short end. I just love the extra color the fabric adds though.

For each of your ruffle pieces hem the two short sides and the bottom. Sew a gathering stitch along the tops.

Line up the ruffles along the gathered edges and layer the short ruffle on top. Place the ruffles right sides together with the short side of the runner. Sew in place.

Flip the ruffle down and fold the seam up towards the runner. Sew about 3/8″ inside the seam on the runner side, sewing the seam to the back.

Press your runner – you might want to use a pressing cloth to protect your lace and pom pom trim. And that’s all there is too it!

Now you can add it to your table or a buffet! (Cute Pom Pom flowers are optional but highly recommended.) 🙂

I just love the contrast of that lace with the burlap!

    I have a huge piece of burlap that I washed and of course it was all strings along the ends that I had to cut away. I would love to make the table runner you showed. How do I finish off the ends, just measure and fold and press then run up on machine? I have an oval table as does my sister so would not put any ruffles on it Maybe just go around the outside with lace and then one wide lace piece down the center. I have such a large piece that I am sure I could probably make my sister place mats to go with it. Would love to make this for both of us. Can you help? Thanks

      Hi Elizabeth! Thank you for your question. Yes, I would do just that…measure, fold, press and run through your machine to make a nice clean seam. I love your idea of using this on an oval table. Your runner will still look lovely even without the ruffles. Lace and burlap make such a great combination, your runner will look amazing! Have a great day and thank you again! Michelle 🙂
