It's so funny to me too, because it seems so "country" chic. I remember the days when burlap bows and chicken decor went hand in hand.
But it's all the rage again, and since I'm a trend follower I had to jump on board!
So here's two of my new favorite additions to our home.
~ Burlap Frame Ring Holder
I have this in my kitchen, so my ring has a pretty place to rest when it's about to get messy!
~Burlap Collage Frame
I can't take any credit for this frame idea. It was all my sister's. She has a cork board in her home full of photos from their sponsor children with this quote from Mother Teresa,
"Live simply so others may simply live".
So I stole the idea (and the quote) and made one for our play room.
Here's the step by step tutorial on how to do it. It's crazy easy!!
Lay out the board and measure out your burlap.
Cut the burlap
Apply Mod Podge to the entire backing.
Lay burlap down onto backing. I then cut twine to the exact measurement of how I needed them to lay on my board.
I then used hot glue at the edges and cross points (at the X) of the twine.
Put it back into the frame (which I spray painted white) and hang it!
(Noticing the frame is crooked. Serves me right for not using the level)
I made the ring holder frame the exact same way. Only I stuck a thumbtack into the middle to hold the ring. Easy stuff people!
After all…I love burlap!!
