Make a pretty burlap silverware holder for Thanksgiving with this simple tutorial.
Welcome! It has been a busy weekend getting ready for several fun blog hops coming up this week. Tuesday I am sharing my Thanksgiving Tablescape and am using my Burlap Silverware Holders that I made two years ago.

I never did a tutorial and thought I would share it now if you want to make your own. The best part is they are no sew!
Sewing is something I really wish I could do and someday I may just learn. But for now I resort to other methods! Here is the finished project:
A big thank you to the very talented Ann at On Sutton Place who shared a tutorial for this several years ago. I just added my own twist for Thanksgiving and customized the size.
Thanksgiving Burlap Silverware Holder
- 1 yard Burlap
- Drop Cloth Scraps
- StazOn Ink Pad
- Fabric Scissors
- Hot Glue
I started with a yard of Burlap from Hobby Lobby, though you don’t need that much.
Burlap is something I use for lots of craft projects, so I always keep extra on hand. I wanted to make 6 holders, so I cut 6 pieces 6″ X 24″ then frayed the sides.
Next, fold one end for the top approximately 7″ and the bottom about 3″, then again another 6″ to make the pocket. Then fire up the hot glue gun and glue each side only up to the top of the pocket.
The drop Cloth was cut to size about 3″x4″ and I just hot glued the sides to the Burlap. I had the perfect stamp left over from my Stampin’ Up! demo days.
It is a turkey and I added a grateful banner. As I was stamping on fabric I used staz-on ink, which works better on fabric. The Silverware fits perfectly!
I plan to make some for Christmas this year using red Burlap! It’s very inexpensive as well.
