Food Covers


  • Colored burlap
  • Wooden beads (2 colors)
  • Scissors


  1. Determine the bowl you would like to cover and measure its diameter.

  2. Add 8 inches to your bowl’s diameter and cut burlap into a square. For example, if your bowl’s diameter is 12 inches, cut a 20 inch square.

  3. Fray the edges of the burlap about 1 ½ inches up from the edges. Repeat on all four sides.

  4. Spaced out every inch, thread approximately 5 strands of the burlap through your bead.

  5. Knot these strands to secure the bead.

  6. Repeat on all four sides.


  • Rule of thumb: If you’re having trouble threading your beads, try using beads with larger holes or use tape to create a point for threading.
