- burlap (enough yardage to run table length, plus 20")
- white cotton twill (same yardage as burlap)
- ironing board
- white all-purpose thread
- 1 yard white pleated trim
- white acrylic paint
- painter's tape
- 1.0 liner brush
- size 6 flat artist brush
- "Joy" stencil (optional)
Measure and Cut Fabric
Measure then cut burlap and white cotton twill to 22 inches wide by table length plus 20 inches long. The additional 20 inches of length allows for a 10-inch overhang on both table ends.
Sew and Press Runner
Place cut burlap on top of cut twill, right sides together and edges lined up. Pin in place. Sew sides of runner together, leaving ends open (Image 1). Turn runner right side out and press sewn edges (Image 2).
Fold and Press Ends
Fold ends of runner under and press closed (Images 1 and 2). Make sure burlap and twill line up. Repeat on other end.
