I love anything burlap. I love burlap almost as much as I love farmhouse signs and quotes. As I was thinking of January post ideas, I thought I’d share some easy, cheap and adorable burlap crafts with you.
1. Framed burlap initial print
All you need are some old picture frames, some 8×10 burlap sheets, a printer and a graphic from The Graphics Fairy or WeddingChics.com (this is where I got mine).
2. Clip photo displays
For this one, you just need 8×10 picture frames with no glass, 8×10 burlap sheets, hot glue gun and a small binder clip or clothes pin.
3. Burlap candle wraps
All you need for this one is burlap ribbon or 8×10 burlap sheets cut into strips, pillar candles, lace and hot glue.
4. Fake grain sack
All you need is a graphic from The Graphics Fairy, some 8×10 burlap sheets, a printer, and a picture frame. You can read more about this one here.
5. Burlap covered books
I hope you enjoyed this project idea gallery! Happy crafting!
Things are continuing with our remodel and we are right on track to be finished with the project by the end of October. I’ll post an update next week, but for now, I want to share some simple and easy wood signs that you can make yourself!
I have made each of these and I love how they all turned out!
1. Bible verse pallet signs
We purchased ready-made wood pallet signs from Hobby Lobby and created stencils using a Silhouette Cameo. We then painted the stencils and hung them above our bed. We love how they turned out!
Hi, all! We have begun a renovation project right now and things in our lives and our home are a bit crazy. Instead of walking you through a woodworking project this week, I am going to instead share some simple and easy wood crafts anyone can do.
1. Candy corn from scrap wood- Megan Plus Five
This candy corn by Megan Plus Five is cute and would be simple to make. Plus, I have a lot of scrap wood I could use.
2. Wooden post pumpkins
I found these cute 4×4 post pumpkins on Etsy. I have an extra 4×4 sitting around and this would be super easy to make!
3. Scrap wood pumpkin- The Summery Umbrella
This cute little pumpkin would be easy to make! I like the wood slide stem and burlap bow too.
4. Pallet wood sign
You have probably seen these little pallet signs all over Pinterest. You can make them for every season and holiday- these are especially cute.
5. DIY Wood Block House
I found this super cute house on Pinterest, and even though it’s not necessarily fall, it still would be a super cute addition to your fall decor.
Hope you enjoyed this roundup! We will see you Saturday!
I know it isn’t quite fall yet; it won’t be fall until the 22nd. However, after the year we have had, I am into doing whatever brings me joy these days. Fall decorating brings me joy- our home is the most beautiful to me when it’s decorated for fall and Christmas. So I decided to decorate early…and I am so glad I did it.
I’m not going to show you every single room in our home, nor am I going to show you every fall decor item. Consider this our highlight reel.
Our living room is one of my favorite rooms to decorate, now that we built the fireplace. I love the orange pillows against the navy plaid chairs. We topped our mantle off with a fall garland, pumpkins, simple white candlesticks and candles, and a fall wreath from my family.
We also have fall pillows and a throw made from my dad’s T-shirts on our family room sofa.
Our two bathrooms have these pipe shelves, and we have decorated both of them for fall.
Our kitchen, which is under renovation, has a tiny bit of fall decor as well. This pitcher belonged to my great grandmother and I bet she’d love to know I am using it.
Lastly, our dining room is particularly lovely this time of year. My favorite things in the room are this fall runner I bought last year and a set of pretty placemats my grandmother gave me.
I hope you have a blessed day, and I will see you again this Friday for a post from a special guest.
Hi, all! It’s been a minute. We have taken a few weeks off blogging and social media influencing to figure out our crazy new lives and schedules amongst the covid crisis. We have missed you all dearly but we are glad to be back online.
As you know, my husband wanted me to get rid of the scrap wood pile in the garage. I told him you can’t just get rid of perfectly good wood…you must build something cool with it.
Enter my grape arbor. We knew we wanted to plant grapes next year, but I didn’t want a traditional low grape arbor. I wanted a tall arbor!
First, I dug holes and sunk four 4×4 posts. I then attached the posts with two 1×6 boards on each side (front, back and sides).
I then cut shorter pieces, just a little longer than the width of the sides. I attached them parallel on each side.
Then, I cut pieces for the top and cut them slightly wider than the top of the arbor.
I kept adding slats until I had it finished.
And I cannot wait until we have actual grapes growing from this thing!! Stay tuned!!
