Brown Paper Packages: Burlap Garland

Hello friends!  I'm Kierste, the girl behind {brown paper packages}, and I am delighted to be a part of Amanda's "Fall Fever"!




  I'm a simple girl, and believe that the simple touches are what make all the difference. Burlap is one of my favorite things to work with, and it's absolutely perfect for this time of year.  This burlap garland is one of those simple touches, and will take just minutes to make! It's also an inexpensive project--less than $5--plus all you need is some burlap and some twine!
I {love} it!



ITEMS YOU NEED:
  • burlap
  • twine/jute
DIRECTIONS:

1.  Measure your space, and cut a piece of twine to fit the space, plus a little extra on either side. Tie a knot where you want to begin your strips of burlap on one end, and a knot on the other end, where you want your strips to stop.

2.  Cut the burlap into strips--I wanted mine long, so made them about 2 inches wide and 18 inches long.

3.  Starting where the knot is, start tying your strips of burlap on the twine.  I used about a yard of burlap.

Add this to your mantel, a doorway, or even across your front porch for a darling addition to your fall decor.
 



Thanks so much for having me, Amanda!  I hope you'll stop on by {brown paper packages} to say hi...I'd love to have you!




What a fun, cheap and easy project! Those kinds are the best kinds!
Burlap is so fun to work with and this project is darling!
Stay tuned for tomorrow - Nicole from Wannabe Crafty is here!
