Can I just tell you how thankful I am that burlap is trendy right now? 😉
cheap (ahem, penny pinched.) And it’s versatile. And it even looks great as you transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas.
And, it handles a Sharpie marker just fine. 😉
To make a similar runner, here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 yards burlap (it comes in tons of great colors if you don’t like brown) – mine was $4.78 after my 40% off Hobby Lobby coupon
- a pair of scissors
- a stencil (I used one I had from the burlap banner a few months ago)
- a sharpie marker (I ended up using a grey one that I found at the last minute in my junk drawer – any color will do!)
Just cut your burlap into the size that you want (watch this video to see how to easily cut burlap in a straight piece – I learned that trick from the worker at Hobby Lobby and it makes cutting burlap so much simpler!)
Then just fray the edges by pulling off a few strands, and add your monogram with your stencil. Success!
You can also see how I made wreaths our dining room chairs for just $3 at the Dollar Tree, and stop back Tuesday when I’ll add in another penny-pinched decorating idea for Christmas. I’d love to hear what other tips you have on frugal decorating too this Christmas season!
I’d love for you to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!) If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
