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!
I love having a pretty wreath on my door. Sometimes I buy wreaths from a friend at church who makes beautiful wreaths, but sometimes when I have a little more time, I make simple wreaths myself. I am going to share a few of my own creations but also a few from around the Internet. Enjoy!!
1. Simple hydrangea wreath
I made this one a few years ago from an oval wreath and some very realistic hydrangeas.
2. Painted letter wreath
You know how much I love monograms!! I made this one entirely from materials I had on hand.
3. Simple tulip wreath from Chatfield Court
This cute little wreath would look great on your front door! You could make it fairly cheaply as well.
4. DIY Eucalyptus Wreath from Bitterroot DIY
This wreath is simple and beautiful! I love it and I love the colors.
5. Hula hoop wreath by Living Letter Home
I’ve never made a giant wreath before, much less one from a hula hoop. But this blog post makes me want to try.
What beautiful spring wreath have you made recently?
Well, life returned to normal this week when we all said goodbye to our beloved Christmas break and went back to work and school. The oldest of the Little Lumbers actually went back to school last week.
Because I never get to do fun mommy things like eat lunch at school with my kid, I did exactly that. This is one benefit to working on a different school system than the one your children attend- you can sometimes do some non-teacher parent things when you’re off and they’re not.
I also captured this super cute picture of the Littlest Lumber modeling her Daddy’s church shoes. Daisy the cat seems to be saying, “what are thooooose?”
I’ve been a bit under the weather this week but I went back to work. A certain little kitty decided to keep me company. She’s a pretty good nurse.
I’m working on transitioning my out building into a new crafting space for me. I needed somewhere to spread out my projects and not worry about having to clean them back up each day. Right now it still looks like a hot mess but I’m definitely not done.
Well, that’s what’s new with the Lumbers this week! Check back tomorrow for Scripture Sunday!
I love pine cones- I use them to decorate for fall, Christmas AND spring. I have tons of them around my house and I can always find them by the bucket full. Did you know you can easily make simple and cute ornaments from them?
You will need pine cones, your choice of ribbon and some twine, as well as a hot glue gun.
Tie your ribbon into a pretty bow.
Tie a piece of twine around the bow
And hot glue the bow to the pine cone.
Isn’t that the cutest and easiest thing ever?
Check back on Saturday for our Christmas home tour. Have a wonderful Friday!
