There are thousands of ways burlap can be used around the house, as table cloths, upholstery, even wallpaper. Burlap is cheap (2 yards for $6.50). It's easy to find at hardware stores, and you can transfer print onto any section to personalize your fabric.
Burlap can also be eco-friendly if you use recycled material. Used bags can be found in your grocery store produce section or try local farmer's markets and feed stores.
