Burlap Memo Board

Posted by on Feb 28, 2013 in burlap, crafts | 21 comments

I have Spring Fever.

It is presenting itself in the form of me wanting to change just about every room in the house.

My family better hold on tight.

There are some changes on the way. . .

I shared a twine wrapped frame with you a couple of days ago.

I made another one yesterday for a wedding gift.

Here is how to make a burlap memo board:

How to Make a Burlap Memo Board

Here is the real “how-to”ย that I did earlier in the week.

I am a gatherer of things.

A little of this. . .

A little of that. . .

I sometimes wonder why I am buying another old frame.

What am I ever going to do with it?

I buy yards of burlap for “just in case. . . “

Luckily, my oldest daughter is a collector of cute stamps.

I have rolls and rolls of ribbon.

Just because.

I buy cute little chalkboard clothespins knowing that I will be glad that I have them one day.

And, then the day arrives that I am thankful for each little random tid-bit that I have purchased along the way.

An idea comes together.

All of the randomness begins to fall into place.

And, I have a beautiful, unique gift for some very special people.

  1. Hooray, love your great frame Melissa, loved the first one from the other day also. Do you find that one idea begets another, etc?
    You’re a smart gal, why wait til you have a project to have to go find all the elements for it? Might not find the cute ones you accumulate along the way and not on sale.
    I’ve been doing that for years, if I see cute little tidbits on sale I buy them if I can, not knowing what on earth I’ll do with them but eventually the projects present themselves and the light bulb goes on thinking of those cute little embellishments I bought. Then the hard part is remembering where I put them, lol. You haven’t seen my studio.

    Found some frames today, smaller ones but at least found frames. The Salvation Army thrift shop had gobs of them at ridiculous prices.
    Went to Habitat also today and same story there. Did find some cute ceramic bunnies tho at decent prices so will have some cute stuff for Easter for my shutter shelf/a.k.a. mantel. That shelf is giving me so much fun decorating it, finding goodies to put on it for different seasons, holidays. Keeps me out of trouble.
    Didn’t buy high boy I wanted. They wouldn’t take less and I guess I didn’t want to spend that kind of money. Not meant to have it I guess. I have a dresser outside that I’m going to work on, see what I can do. Have some tables and shutters out in shed also so I’m going to challenge myself to make something I want out of them, somehow. That will be the fun. I need challenges to keep this old brain perking.
    Here we are at the weekend almost again. Where do the weeks go? Pretty soon will be time for the kids Easter break. Supposed to be in low to middle 50’s here for weekend and next week. Hope it’s warmed up for you in TN Happy Day and fun creating
