Natural materials inspire me, as does a bargain- so it makes sense that these 2 things fed into my latest obsession…burlap table skirts. Rough yet elegant, I love the weighty draped look they offer.

I found a company in the States who ships them, but then thought to myself…. heck I can sew a straight line (barely). This DIY became my project last weekend, and it was actually super easy.

Burlap is really cheap at $1.50 or so per yard, but I wanted trim at the bottom, which killed the budget. Trim is not necessary but does make the utilarian burlap seem sort of uptown when pared together.

Start with a round table, mine is oak and kinda to nice to hide, but I wanted a change.

Measure your tabletop’s diameter.

Measure your height from the table’s top to floor and x2- add top diameter.

This number will be your round finished size.

Sew burlap widths together wide enough and long enough to create a square that your round size fits within. Iron well.

Fold the square in half and half again to find center- mark this point.

Now you can draw your arch which will give you a round- this length is table height plus half of top diameter.

Finish by adding decorative trim.

Easy, even for me.
