Burlap Placemats


I found the inspiration for these burlap place mats from Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous.  Linda has so many cute burlap ideas and also some great tips for working with burlap.  Check out her helpful hints here.



These were super easy to make and don't require any sewing!  I simply measured and cut using Linda's tip for pulling a thread to make them even.  Then I frayed the edges and trimmed them all the way around. 



I printed the numbers on cardstock and cut them out to make a stencil.  Using fabric paint, I stenciled on the numbers.  
You can spray the place mats with starch to make them a little stiffer too.

  8. I love your placemats. How did you get them to not fray more than you wanted without sewing them?
