5 Simple Burlap Projects

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of travel for my family. 🙂

Have I ever mentioned that my husband is a youth pastor?

This opens us up to so many amazing opportunities in the summer!

June was full of local camps…and July has been full of travel.

We spent a week serving an orphanage in Mexico called The City of Children.

From there we drove up the coast of California all the way to San Francisco.

{Daisy won a trip through Pottery Barn Teen for her bedroomthat is a blog post in itself…AMAZING!}

We flew home, unpacked, washed clothes and packed again for New York.

As I type this post, we are at camp Shiloh that serves children from the Bronx.

Fun times!

So today I am sharing some of my favorite burlap projects…

  1. What awesome opportunities! LOVE San Fran so much…and New York City is another favorite. Hope you have a blast! Thanks for sharing these burlap projects…I need to make a bed skirt.


  2. Have a safe and fun experience in NY with the kids “in the Bronx.” I love all things burlap! I even have a board set up for exclusive pins of all things burlap! They had rolls of printed patriotic burlap ribbon on clearance at Walmart and even though the 4th is long over, I couldn’t resist buying 3 different patterns for next year! – Karen
