Inexpensive burlap decor

Burlap is a woven fabric made from jute, hemp or similar fibre. Found at most fabric stores, burlap offers an inexpensive way to make your own home decor and accessories.


Probably one of the cheapest fabrics you can buy, burlap is easy to use and affordable. This coarsely woven fabric can be pulled along the cut edge - so that sewing is not required - and used for a variety of decor projects for a home.

Burlap is a wonderful idea if you are looking for an inexpensive way to dress up a table - or two! Because you don't have to sew the edges of this fabric, it is so easy to cut burlap to make your own tablecloth, table runner, or even placemats and cutlery holders.




Don't stop now... add an extra element to your dining table with burlap serviette rings, or wrap plain glass accessories with burlap, lace and ribbon.
