Hi, my name is Carolyn and I'm addicted to burlap.
There, I said it! Although, admitting it doesn't necessarily mean I have a sincere desire to change. :)
How could anyone not love burlap? It's inexpensive, looks natural, is easy (although slightly messy) to work with, comes in a variety of colors and even patterns, and is readily accessible.
If you like burlap but aren't quite sure where you can fit it into your décor, here are a few examples from around our home:
|Burlap tucked between objects in a vignette - as filler and to add texture and softness|
|Burlap monogram -|
Cut monogram out of thick cardboard, cover in burlap using hot glue and outline with brass thumbtacks.
Wooden laser cut frame purchased at Michaels and spray painted Rustoleum Heirloom White
|Burlap runner - Cut to size and fringe all four sides - no sewing needed|
|Wreaths - Cut strips of burlap and tie to wire wreath form|
|Burlap backing for framed monogram|
|Burlap charger (purchased at Hobby Lobby) to brighten a dark bookcase|
Burlap trees - cover Styrofoam cone forms with strips of burlap using hot glue.
These were then spray painted with metallic gold paint.
|Dress up a plain candle - wrap with burlap trim and tie with a pretty ribbon. Easy peasy!|
|Burlap drum lamp shade purchased at Lowe's|
Looks as if I'm bordering on overuse of burlap .... maybe it's time to introduce a new material to my décor?
In what fun ways have you used burlap in your home and your décor?
