Burlap Table Runner

The first challenge we tackled was the burlap table runner from The Pinning Mama.  We loved the idea of customizing the table runner with the initials of our families last names.  Since my sister is hosting this year we did an F for her maiden name and a V at the other end for her married name.

Total Price: $20.16


  • Sharpie Paint Marker to trace the stencil
  • Marks-A-Lot Jumbo Chisel Tip Permanent Marker to fill in outline
  • Burlap Runner- we bought ours from hobby lobby for $12.00.  You can buy one cheaper online here at Amazon.
  • Letter Stencil- we used Cambria font to create a stencil on cardstock

Place Cards

Next we were inspired by these cute place cards from an Etsy Shop named FairfolkWeddings. So we decided to do our own take on them.  We used our own 2 inch wide paper punch and downloaded a calligraphy font that we liked since our hand writing isnt the best.

Gold Touches

Now for the gold touches on our table.  Our main inspiration was the metallic pumpkin table scape from Better Home and Garden. We loved the idea of combining gold, burlap, and wood. We began with three different sized artificial pumpkins and a stem of artificial maple leaves.
