I picked up these REALLY CUTE burlaps at Joann's last week ($9.99/yd - I bought 1/4 yd of each & had a coupon, so less than $2/piece). Maybe 'burlaps' isn't a word, but it should be. So you know - Burlap STINKS. actually. smells nasty. and, it made me a little itchy.
The plan: to freshen up my fireplace/mantel area. I dug out some of my candle holder stash, a ruler & a hot glue gun & went to town. I covered 4 glass containers simply by wrapping a piece of burlap & running a line of hot glue down the back. I figure I can pick the hot glue off later when I'm ready to un-do the burlap. Some of them got at cute little wrap of grapevine wire, some got a stripe of a different burlap.
I love my animal print decorator balls, but they are pretty beat up and chipped, so I decided to cover them, too. They aren't perfect, but it's burlap, and rustic, right? They look pretty good if you don't get close :)
I did buy the yellow vase at Hobby Lobby ($22).
see my very, very special dried hydrangeas? I cut those
the day we moved last summer.
I'm really happy with the way it all turned out. Now I'm ready for summer, right?
