Hang buntings

 

Whether you're decorating for a party or simply updating the look of your kids' bedroom, DIY buntings add a charming touch to a space. After cutting the burlap into your desired size and shape, personalize it with letters, drawings, and paint.

Use it as a table runner

 

Add a distinct rustic touch to your space by choosing to use burlap as a table runner. Complete the look by adding small potted plants, vintage decor, and mini buckets as containers as well.

Craft your own accessories

 


Does your vanity or closet look too plain? Liven it up with lovely accessories that you crafted on your own. Create flowers, bows, and other knicknacks using extra scraps of burlap.

Use it to decorate mason jars

 


Create a rustic-inspired vignette or centerpiece using recycled jars and bottles wrapped in burlap. Once you're done working on the bottles, you can put candles inside or even flowers. For a vintage-rustic feel, you can collect a few twigs, clean it, and put it in one jar.
