I've made something else with burlap (hessian).
A table runner.
and some napkin holders
To make the runner I just cut the burlap to size (didn't even measure it - so unlike me). I sewed about 1cm in from the edges and frayed the border.
I made a stencil of a scroll and painted it on with black fabric paint. Same as what I did to make the Merry Christmas banner. To make the napkin rings I cut the burlap into rectangles, sewed a diamante (rhinestone) button to the centre and then just glued it together at the back with fabric glue.
I like the combination of the glittery diamante buttons with the rustic burlap. The napkins are the ones I bought from Tuscany, and the colour works really well with the burlap.
We are having the family over for lunch on Boxing Day (26th) so I thought I'd use this table setting.
How cute is this wire basket with glass bottles? Where from? Spotlight $9.95 I know!!!
