Burlap and ticking happen to be my two favorite materials right now and with Christmas right around the corner, I have come up with a few ideas for Christmas using them and I'll share the tutorials with you along the way!
And just to make it more fun I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway run along side this.
For any of the projects/tuts you comment about at the end of each post, your name will be entered into the drawing. Each comment counts as another entry. This means everyone has a chance to enter, BUT:
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE A FOLLOWER OF THIS BLOG - NEW FOLLOWERS WELCOME!
For a second entry, post about these burlap tutorials on your sidebar with a link back to this blog;
And for a third entry, do a post with a picture of one of the burlap projects in it and let us see your handiwork too! Please make sure to let me know that you do this so that I'll put your name in again and not miss your post!
I'll show you what a couple of the giveaway items are at the end of this post.
Here's what to use:
A styrofoam donut about 8" in diameter
A length of ticking (or any Christmas fabric you like!)
Burlap - the finer the better
Wrap this length of burlap around the foam wreath, slightly overlapping the edges as you go
Next, from another piece of burlap, cut about a dozen leaf shapes, like so~
Now take your ticking fabric and tie into a fairly large bow and stick it on at the bottom of the wreath.
And now for the prize: I'm offering one of my own handmade prairie stump dolls ready for Christmas
I really hope you like and that you'll join in - the more the merrier! Thanks so much!
