I have been getting my “craft on” for my fall Décor this season. I found this 15 ft. Burlap at Hobby Lobby already in a roll for $5.99 and I used a 40% coupon app so it came out to $3.60. They have the same roll in the Christmas section and the fall section with just the title fall or Christmas and it’s already 40% off, that way you can save your 40% coupon for something else. I have seen these garland go for over $25 on etsy and $25 at Hobby Lobby. No, I only do easy crafts so if I can do this — anyone can!
The way I gathered my burlap:I used florist wire. I first tried a needle with thicker string and it was just not working out well for me. I simply unrolled my burlap across my living room floor sat down and as I ran my wire through I bunched my burlap. Play with it – the closer you bunch, the tighter your garland will look. At the end of each wire I tied twine around it so It would look better when I tied up.
There you go another easy craft. They do have shimmer burlap that I thought was pretty, it does cost a few dollars more. Cant wait to put some pumpkins under my garland!
Burlap, Chevron, and some sparkly clothespins – what’s not to love? So on one of my many trips to Hobby Lobby, I scored this fabulous frame that was originally $56 for little over $5 dollars! Love it! So I bought 2 of them! Always check out clearance at Hobby Lobby (this was in the 90% section). I wanted to create one of those clothespins frames that you see everywhere. I wanted the printed burlap that I found for $15.99 a yard at Jo Ann’s and because I am cheap I thought I could make my own. Well I did a few stencils and it was a hot mess! Apparently I cannot stencil. But I did find this chevron burlap at Hobby Lobby for only $5.99 a yard. I then used my 40% coupon app which made it $3.60. Love a great deal!
Now for my frame I had some Twine Jute thread. Once you buy a roll you will have this roll probably the rest of your life.
I used a staple gun to staple my thread to the frame. Once I had them placed, I cut out my burlap for my frame and stapled it. I found my mini clothes pins at Target craft section for less than $3.00. You could also make your own with modge podge and glitter, but some things are just better already made! (glitter mess free!) When I was done I grabbed some burlap ribbon I had and made a bow, and hot glued it to my frame. And there you go; for less than $10.00 I made myself a Burlap Chevron clothespins frame! Now I have tons of Chevron burlap leftover. I need to think of something to do with it.
