Fun With Burlap!

If you've been into a Pottery Barn store lately, you've probably seen their cute greenery. I love how the bases of the pots are wrapped in burlap. Here's an example of what I'm talking about (from their holiday line).

I'm sure you've seen this idea all over blogland, so here's just one more reason to get inspired! I took some leftover burlap and literally just wound it around a pot, then tied it with some twine.

The hardest part was cleaning all the burlap scraps off my floor. Seriously!

While I had the burlap out, I came up with another use for it. Check it out below! (And I'll be back soon to show you how I did it.)

See you in a few days!

I love it so simple and easy but best of all cheap! I'm looking for cheap decorating ideas for our new place in a few weeks just easy and cheap ways to give a place a bit more character.

Have a lovely day,
Jade

Little ones do make us change things, don't they. We have had our share of lamp nosedives in the past. Now mine are older, but I remember those day.

The substitute works well too. Love the blue. Perfect color.


I love your kitchen crate below. It looks wonderful. It is always wonderful to re-purpose things that we have around and make something even better out of it.

Love the burlap wrapped topiary, but equally cute in the candle holder. Love how the light shows through the burlap!
