Burlap Crafts That Are Easy To Make

Burlap is such a wonderful fabric to work with.  The texture and warm color options make it a perfect accent fabric to use in a rustic or shabby chic decorating style.  Another big plus is that it’s fairly inexpensive to buy.  You can purchase burlap by the yard for around $3 and if you have a coupon from Joann Fabrics you may have just saved 50%!

So now that you know that you want to use burlap, how do you incorporate it into your home decor?  I have plenty of burlap crafts to help get you started.

Burlap Crafts

Bin Labels

I’ll start with a real simple idea I had for making burlap labels for some galvanized tin tubs that I had.

All I did was cut a square of burlap and decoupaged it onto the tin tub.  I then “labeled” it by spelling out the word with vintage buttons.  For this particular tub, I made a generic label of “joy” to use at Christmas.  I use it by the fireplace to keep birch logs in.  You can see more details for this project here.

Here are some more burlap craft ideas that I found.
