Buckets of Burlap [DIY]

Lately I have become more and more enamored with natural/raw textiles or fabrics like twine,  jute, hemp, brown kraft paper, and burlap!
Honestly, I don’t know what has come over me! Making my own laundry and cleaning supplies…and now this? I am genuinely puzzled by this new fascination I have with all things “natural”…if someone can give me some insight, I’d be interested. ๐Ÿ™‚
Anyway….instead of questioning it…I guess I should just be embracing it instead!  So tonight I ran across several cool ways to use BURLAP and figured….what the heck! Let’s explore this new vista……..

Burlap Napkin Rings
How cute are these?  I like the rustic combined with vintage look. Head on over the Tatertots&Jello.com for the tutorial.  Cute, cute, cute!

Burlap Pillows
The great thing about burlap…it goes great with just about anything.  Very easy to match prints with it.
The fun things about this pillow is the monogram made with a Freezer Paper Stencil (Note to self: need to blog about this).

Burlap-Wrapped Vase

Once again…it really doesn’t get any easier than this folks!  Find vase, cut burlap (leave some glass peeking through on the top and bottom), wrap vase, secure with hot glue gun (or other adhesive of your choice) and finish off with some string!

Burlap-Tied Boutonniere

Great for a chic, outdoor wedding. No tutorial. Ask your florist to do it for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

Burlap Fabric Tray

A slightly higher level of craftiness involved here…but nothing too intimidating. I just love the idea. A great catch-all for the kitchen or mudroom or even a nightstand.  Maybe my hubby could be convinced to throw his keys and change in THIS, rather than on the kitchen table.

Well, I could go on and on and on and on….there are THAT many cute and clever ideas out there.  But hopefully this will get your started thinking about how burlap can add a nice decorative twist to your world.
