Eight Ways to Decorate with Burlap at Christmas

For those of you who make many of your own Christmas decorations, I have some more ideas to share with you…this time using one of my favorite fabrics for the holidays…burlap! I love the texture and the rustic touch that it adds to my décor…and it’s inexpensive, too! Plus, it’s versatile so it can be used in so many different ways! Here are eight of my favorites...

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Burlap and Plaid Wreath1. Make a wreath
Just wrap a wreath form in strips of burlap and add your favorite embellishments for the perfect holiday accent! My BURLAP AND PLAID CHRISTMAS WREATH is topped off with handmade plaid fabric roses and pine cone roses as well. Instructions for both are included in the tutorial.

A gold foil deer that I had stashed in my attic and strips of burlap were almost all that I needed to create this BURLAP DECOUPAGE DEER.  I love the way it adds a rustic look to my previously “glam” deer!

This RUFFLED BURLAP TABLE RUNNER is the perfect anchor for your holiday tablescapes from Thanksgiving through Christmas and continues to be a work horse all winter! A very detailed tutorial explains how to measure for a perfect fit as well!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Starry Burlap and Plaid Christmas TablescapeI even added a length of plaid flannel ribbon to give it a festive Christmas look…so fun!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Hand-tied Burlap Tablerunner4. Make a no-sew tablerunner
However, even if you can’t or don't want to sew, you can still make a tablerunner! This BURLAP TABLERUNNER is finished with hand-tied fringe to give it even more texture!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Wintery Snowman TablescapeI even criss-crossed a pair of them in this fun SNOWMAN TABLESCAPE as a nod to the snowman’s scarf!

Small pre-made bags were the starters for these BURLAP UTENSIL POCKETS. Just add a felt wreath (pattern included the post) and some pom pom berries and you are good to go!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Ballard Inspired Burlap and Plaid Stockings6. Make stockings
Nothing says Christmas to me much more than plaid, so these BALLARD INSPIRED BURLAP STOCKINGS are finished off with a plaid cuff. The tutorial can actually be used for any fabric or fabric combination.
