Sharpie Monogrammed Burlap table Runner

Ok, I must admit I have joined in on the obsession of Burlap. Everyone seems to be using it for everything these days. So I went shopping on Ebay and found a large roll of burlap. After all what sense would it make to buy a small piece to try before you buy the whole roll... Right?? Anyway... I bought a whole roll and just knew that I was gonna make tons of things with it... Well about 6 months later I have made two garden flags and one table runner... but I am sure I will EVENTUALLY use it all.. One Day... .
Today I am gonna tell you how super duper easy it was to make a Burlap table runner. I only used a pair of scissors, a sharpie, an "R" stencil, and a piece of Burlap cut to the length to fit my table. 
See, I told you that was one big roll of burlap... 
Anyway, first I unrolled a piece along my table to get it the size I needed it. I cut it and then used my stencil & sharpie to monogram & personalize it.

This is what it looked like after I finished coloring  it in.

This is the finished product!!

I think it looks pretty good considering it took about 15 minutes and cost about $5. Now you can hem the edges to give it a more finished look or you can leave it for a more natural frayed edge. Can't wait to see what else I can make with Burlap & Sharpies. I am thinking a new set of place mats may be in my future. I may even break out my paint and see what I come up with.

What do you think of this project? Please share your thoughts and ideas!
As always thanks for stopping by & hope to see you again soon!
