It’s genius!  Now get ready for a darling burlap utensil holder tutorial that is perfect for your Thanksgiving table set-up!

 

Good morning ladies! This is Jamie from Hello Little Scout and I am so thrilled to be guest posting today for Sweet Little Peanut. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and one way that we will be dressing up our feast this year is with these darling burlap utensil holders! They add just enough elegance to make your table feel super special. As it should be! These utensil holders are so easy and require no sewing at all. Who hoo! That’s the best part, right!?  Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

 

Burlap
Muslin
Twine
Scissors
Measuring Tape
Hot Glue & Glue Gun
Image Transfer Paper
Iron

 

 

The first thing you will need to do is cut your burlap and muslin into the shape you want. You can make these as long or wide as you want depending on your preference! I cut my burlap 17 1/2 inches long and 5 1/2 inches wide. My Muslin was cut to 7 1/2 inches long and 3 1/2 inches wide.

 

Fold down the top side of your burlap (towards the back) about 1 1/2 inches. Remember to do this towards the back! You want the utensil holder to look like it has a finished edge when facing up. Hot glue this baby down. This will help to keep the top from fraying!

Take your muslin and fold just a tiny bit of the long edges down and hot glue them. This will help to keep the muslin from fraying as well.

 

 

Next, you will need to fold the bottom side of your burlap up 5 1/4 inches. Place your muslin on top where you like it. Flip the bottom edge back over and hot glue the extra muslin to the burlap. After you have hot glued the muslin to the burlap, hot glue the sides of the utensil holder down so you don’t have any open holes.
We’re almost done! If you haven’t used Image Transfer Paper before don’t worry, it’s super easy! This is the image I used below.

If you choose to use a different image, make sure that when you print it on the transfer paper, it is flipped horizontally. That way when you iron it on your muslin, it will be the right way! All you have to do is print your image on the transfer paper, cut out the image, and then iron on the image with the ink facing the fabric. Make sure to follow the instructions on your individual transfer paper package!

 

I wrapped twine around the front to give it the dimension that it needed! Your company will think you spent hours creating these gorgeous utensil holders. We love this simple and easy way to dress up any Thanksgiving table!
