I love the look of burlap. You can see my ode to burlap post here. I came across instructions for a DIY burlap table runner. Burlap is such an inexpensive fabric and looks great if you are doing a casual wedding but also can look very modern and chic. Below you will find instructions on how to DIY burlap wedding table runners. This post is from a great wedding resource: Style Me Pretty.

These instructions are verbatim from Style Me Pretty.
One bolt of 54-inch wide burlap (you can use less, but 21 runners took the full bolt)
Teal Blue Thread
1. Cut fabric in lengths of 14 feet, two inches.
2. Cut in half lengthwise so that each strip is 27 inches wide
3. Turn the ends and sides under one inch and hem
4. Stitch with a zig zag stitch (my mom used the largest zig zag, about a quarter of an inch) on her machine and chose satin thread)
5. Iron flat
