DIY burlap craft {utensil holders}

Last week I was asked by my friend Mallie at Deco Art to create a fall craft for Hobby Lobby. I kind of have an obsession with Hobby Lobby, so I was ALL on board! I swear I’m in that store at least once a week!

 The first thing that comes to mind when I think about fall is Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite holidays and one that sometimes gets overlooked. It’s a great day to reflect our blessings. I also love being able to spend that day with my family. And I especially love all the yummy food. I thought it would be nice this year to dress up the dinner table, so I created these burlap utensil holders. They only took about 10 minutes to make and are NO-SEW. Can’t beat that! Want to make your own? Let’s get started! 🙂

Burlap craft {utensil holders}

Supplies needed:

  • Burlap
  • Paint and stencil brush
  • Twine or ribbon
  • Tag
  • Chevron stencil below


  1. Cut a piece of burlap (15in x 5in). Beware it’s messy!
  2. Download chevron stencil above (you could also use a different stencil). Print and cut out the stencil. Place the stencil about 4 inches from the bottom of your fabric and tape down the edges. Then paint in between the lines. Make sure to do more of a dabbing, rather than painting strokes.

3. Fold in the bottom edge (about 5 inches) and hot glue the sides together. You don’t need a ton of glue here.

4. Glue (a small dot will do) a piece of twine or ribbon to the back and tie it around the front.

5. Next I stamped “Let’s Eat” onto a simple tag and tied it on. It would also be fun to write your guests name on different tags.

These would add the perfect touch to your fall display or Thanksgiving table!

Thanks for reading. Hope you have a great day!

  1. Hi Jamielyn –

    I bought a bunch of burlap recently – it was almost free so I could not pass it up. I had no idea what I was going to do with it – now I know how I will use some of it – love these utensil holders.

  2. These are great! And i have some wide burlap ribbon with finished edges that I have been wondering what to do with. This might just be it. Visiting from Funky Junk…
