Burlap Garland


 A few weeks ago while browsing through Pinterest, I came across the most stunning linen garland made by Jenni at, Beautiful Nest.  I was inspired to make my own!

Although Jenni used linen, I was able to achieve a similar look using burlap.  Burlap is one of my favorite materials to work with.  In the past I've used it cover a headboard, create an earring display, recover a lampshade and make a pillow.  Its large weave pattern made it perfect for this project.

For the complete tutorial visit Jenni's blog!  She has many awe-inspiring projects.  You'll be glad you stopped by!

*Thanks so much to Laurie @ Tip Junkie and Amy @ WhisperWood Cottage for featuring my garland on their fabulous sites!
