No-Sew Burlap Table Runner {DIY}

My dinning room table has been in need of some desperate attention. The finish is coming off in several spots.  Perfect time for a table runner. I didn't want to invest a lot of time in making one.  

This couldn't be any easier!

1. CUT
For my 4 seat table, I needed 80 inches in length - my table is 60 inches long and I wanted 10 inches of overhang on each side.
Here's a trick when cutting the burlap to keep the edges from fraying:

Cut in between the fibers down one row.  This also guides you straight down the fabric - no guide line required!

Next, I added ribbon on each side using super glue.  Use the gel super glue, NOT the liquid.  The liquid will seep through the ribbon.  Not attractive.

That's it!!
The finished product:

Love how it turned out!!
