The many faces of jute webbing…

Jute webbing is normally used in upholstery projects. It can be purchased at your local fabric shop and is normally .40 a yard.


Black Jute Webbing


It’s normally hidden in upholstery projects, but there are ways you can use it in decor.


Here is a DIY tutorial on a table runner:


Or you can use it to give a chair a face lift:



Or how about some custom napkin rings:



I know it’s crazy to be thinking about the  holidays already, but I’m loving this jute wreath:


Or you add a bit to a ready made roman shade to give it a little something-something!


What else would you use it for?

I'll be using jute webbing as straps for a new duffle bag I'm making, then covering the red jute stitches with a coordinating fabric. So fun!

Very cute ideas. I've seen some of these online too. I love it for a runner.. we're actually doing burlap tabel runners for our beach wedding.

I have thought of using it in all the same ways you have displayed. It is a great look for those that love burlap. How about using it for some picture matting?!! Kathysue

I was just using some of this webbing for an upholstery project the other day and was thinking about how it was too pretty to hide underneath the layers of fabric!

I got a TON of jute webbing when a Joanne's Fabrics was moving. It was like 75% off. It has been patiently waiting for a project to come up, thanks for the inspiration.

I don't know what I'd use it for, but I love natural fibers and fabrics. Usually sustainable, and oh so cute!

I, too, found some last year for a great price. About the same time I got my hands on a bazillion old square dresser drawers - don't ask :). I decorated the outside of the boxes with the jute, used nailhead trim on every end to hold it in place, drilled drainage holes, planted herb gardens and gave them/sold them. They were fabulous! Thanks for reminding me to buy that great deal...even if I don't know what I'll do with it yet.

I've seen a lot of companies coming out with webbing pillows. They will have a plain linen/cotton fabric with a cross of webbing or just one strap going down the front. Very cool looking. It would be so easy to recreate. I hadn't seen it as banding on window treatments though. I really like that. Happy Friday! -c

I'm becoming very familiar with jute webbing...and I'm not sure if I'm so happy about it :) I love it though even if it doesn't do what I say sometimes. It is so versatile. It's my new version of ticking.

Love all of these ideas - especially that table runner! I think it would be great wrapped around votives or glass vases to give a rustic look to your flowers! Along the edge of a lamp shade would be a great mini lamp makeover!

oulingsWe use to weave designs on the webbing and make purses out of them. Can't seem to find any patterns or instructions to do this anymore.

How do you keep webbing hanging straight, like a door hanging.
