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.

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

All those ideas are so cool! I like the chair, I have few that need to be redone!

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!

Very good idea! Never thought to use it!

I love the jute wreath and also the roman shade. Really pretty.

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

Love these ideas especially the table runner and the wreath!

Oh wow! Those napkin rings are to die for! :) Such a great idea!

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.

I'm loving all these ideas!

Courtney @ Project Pretty said...

These are fabulous ideas.. I'd never seen some of them before! Thanks so much for sharing!!

Hello Lover... said...

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.
