5 Burlap Projects

Posted by on Jul 5, 2013 in burlap, crafts | 11 comments

Our 4th of July festivities didn’t turn out quite as we expected.

It rained ALL DAY LONG. . .

But, we still got our bar-b-que,

 from our favorite bar-b-que place in town. . .

And, we still ate blackberry cobbler. . .

And, fireworks still boomed late into the night.

(I didn’t think you could shoot them in the rain,

but, I guess you can?)

Today has continued with more of the same.

(Minus the bar-b-que and cobbler and booming.)

Rainy days are perfect for crafts.

A quick trip to the craft store,

and you could complete ANY

or ALL of these.

  1. A rainy day and some burlap crafting sounds like the perfect mix to me! Your projects are really cute Melissa, love the lampshade 🙂

    xo, Tanya

  2. Oh- I hope you had a good day in spite of the rain. It was so hot here that I didn’t do anything outside today at all – and didn’t get much done inside either- xo Diana

  3. I love all the great ideas you had with the burlap! I will need to try them out! I’ve spent the past two days crafting too because of all this rain!

  4. Pretty projects 🙂 I’m just getting back into burlap after basically mummifying my daughter’s wedding venue with it a while back. I think we used something close to 150 yards for all kinds of decor. I hoped to never see another yard of burlap after that affair 🙂 It is so versatile, though….I’m considering purchasing some blue burlap to wrap my handmade soaps in for market.

  5. Morning Melissa,
    All of these are such cute projects, I especially liked the lil flowers,
    so cute and quite a nice embellishment. Thanks for sharing the how to’s…
    Glad you had a nice 4th despite all the rain. Ours was quiet but good,
    we wound up going out to Outback Steakhouse, and they seated us immediately
    as they weren’t very busy, so that was nice and rare to get seated so quickly and of course, the food was great as always,
    We heard lots of fireworks and saw lots of smoke but only saw one firework.
    oh well, we have seen plenty of fireworks in our day………..so not a
    big deal really for us.

    Have a great week hon,
    Blessings, Nellie

  6. Can’t wait to try your burlap flower. I recently made a burlap wreath and was thinking I’d put colored burlap flowers on it. I’m visiting from the It’s Overflowing link party.

  7. You go girl!!!!! Love this! Please tell me I can feature your memo board over on burlap projects.com!

    Happy day to you!

  8. Love your new picture, you look very pretty.
    Altho I’ve seen them I love your burlap projects, always good to see them again, refresh my old memory and new inspiration.
    I got some new burlap ribbon at HL 2 wks. ago with sunflowers, would make really cute flowers and bows and table runners and gee what else? Also got some dark grey burlap ribbon, not sure what I’ll do with it but had to have it, go figure.
    Sorry to hear your 7/4 was rainy but there’s always crafting to do, you kept busy in great way.
    I did some also even tho it wasn’t raining, just really hot and humid. We did go to a 7/4 celebration later in afternoon put on by city of Fruita. Because of all CO fires no fire works but city hosted free food and orchestra playing patriotic music. The park was very crowded. According to our daughter, too many old farts there. Happy summer gal.

  9. Very cute! I especially like the frame.

  10. I love all of your projects, especially that lampshade. How cute is that. Thanks for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  11. I love how burlap can make so many things better! The burlap twine frame is my favorite. Such cuteness!
