This burlap and lace table runner may be the easiest sewing project I have made. You can add as many layers of lace as you want, but I wanted just hint of frilliness on mine.
Roll of burlap
All you need to do is measure the length of the burlap for your table and cut. Then trim the lace to the width of the burlap. Pin the lace to each ends and sew. I used a zigzag stitch, which seemed to work the best.
