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. :-)
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……..
#2 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).
You had me at Burlap….but then you throw in the “No-Sew” and I am hooked! A little stitch witchery and a few curtain rod clips and you have a whole new look for a room! Another burlap bonus…no need to “finish” edges…the fraying only ADDS to the look (in my humble opinion).
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!
Great for a chic, outdoor wedding. No tutorial. Ask your florist to do it for you. :-)
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.
I keep finding more cool burlap ideas! :-) Here’s a few more….
