A friend of mine was looking for burlap drapes recently and in the process of helping her, I came across some really cute crafts using burlap. I love the simple charm of burlap. And since it is such a neutral color and a sturdy fabric, it lends itself to a variety of uses beyond rustic, country décor. Here are some of my favorite DIY burlap projects from Pinterest.
DIY Framed Burlap Monogram
Thanks to One Frugal Chick for sharing the instructions to make your own framed burlap monogram. This is a simple decoration you can make for your own home or a great gift for a couple for their wedding or anniversary.
DIY Monogrammed Burlap Pillows
And how about some monogrammed burlap pillows to round out the look? The sisters from Two It Yourself show you how.
DIY Burlap Bucket Bag
Don’t put the sewing machine away yet! You’ll need it to create this adorable and functional bucket bag, directions courtesy of A Beach Cottage.
DIY Woven Burlap Table Runner
I love this woven burlap table runner from Fab You Bliss for a casual, every day table setting.
DIY Burlap Wine Bags
And what better way to wrap the bottle of wine you’re bringing as a hostess gift than these adorable burlap wine bags? Sophisticated Yellow gives you detailed instructions to easily make them yourself.
DIY Burlap Door Hangings
I found dozens of pictures for burlap door hangings, but these instructions from Miss Kopy Kat were the most detailed and I enjoy her writing (she’s funny!). She made a cross and also a shamrock for St. Patrick’s Day, but since she shows you how to make your own pattern you can make whatever you want (one for each holiday if you desire) following her directions.
DIY Burlap Bulletin Board
For your work station, a burlap bulletin board is a natural backdrop. If you have a large or custom sized space where you’d like to place it, these step-by-step directions from Crafty Sisters will walk you through the process.
If you don’t need a custom shape and size, you might be happier with this easier version using a framed cork board as the base from Sohl Design.
