No Sew Burlap Silverware Holder

I am working on decor for an upcoming Sprinkle.  When I saw these No Sew Burlap Silverware Holders on Ann’s blog On Sutton Place I knew I had to try to make them.  The total cost was less than $10.  And they took me less than an hour, well more like 10 minutes here and there over 3 days.  If you have a toddler you can relate.

Items you will need: 

  • 5 in. x 22 in. piece of burlap
  • Fusible tape or hot glue gun
  • Embellishments of your choice – Personally I love bows, so I used pink and white ribbon.

Step 1: Cut the burlap into 5″ wide by 22″ long pieces.  If the pieces are a little smaller it is ok.  I wanted to use the entire piece of burlap that I had so a couple of pieces were closer to 20″. If you have a board with measurements I would use it to ensure you are cutting straight.  I marked the top and the bottom of each piece and found that a couple of my pieces were smaller.

Step 2 – Fold one end of the burlap over 6 in. (this will be the top).  Ann used an fusible tape, I ended up using my hot glue gun instead.  I put glue on all 4 sides and then fold it over.  If you use hot glue gun, be careful.  I burned myself a couple of times.


Step 3 – At the opposite end fold over 2 in and glue down the 4 sides.  Take the 2 in. end and fold it over again 5 inches. Hot glue again on 3 sides so there is an opening for the silverware.  I used my first one as a guide so that all the holders would be the same size and I did not have to keep using the ruler.

Step 4 – Now it is time to add the accents.  I made a little bow out of the pink ribbon (wired).  I glued it to the burlap.  Ann recommends tucking it into the flap of the pocket or adding a safety pin to attach it.

I cannot wait to set the entire table for the sprinkle so I can see these in action.  I am working on a gender reveal and and Easter celebration, I think I will be using these for all three events.

What do you think?  What decoration would you add to the burlap?
