DIY: Burlap Vase Decoration
So, you've been using burlap to make yourself some lovely decorations for your party, but now you have all of this extra fabric everywhere, and you don't know what to do with it. Throwing it all away seems like such a waste, but you have no idea of how you're supposed to use it for something constructive.
Well, with just a little time and effort you can turn those burlap scraps into some spectacular decorative pieces.
Perhaps you've wanted to add some flowers to your house, but the vases you own have such a dull appearance. You want to use them, but you can't find a way to make them look more beautiful than what they are now. Well, with just a bit of that extra burlap you can give those ordinary vases a rustic charm of their own that will be certain to brighten up any space. All you'll need is a few supplies and some time.
- The first thing you'll need to do is gather your supplies. You'll want to get some burlap (you don't need that much, but the strips should be about a foot in length), some Velcro, a sewing kit to put it all together, and the vase itself. Once you've gathered those supplies, take a minute to measure the circumference of the vase you'll be working with and then add a little bit to that measurement. Not that much, but an inch or so will do.
- Once you have your measurements, cut the burlap fabric into a strip at that length. Ultimately the width of the burlap doesn't matter at this point beyond how much space you'll have to decorate later. Take one end of the burlap strip and fold about ½ - ¾” of fabric over each other, and then sew the fold in place.
- Once you’ve sewed the end of the fabric strip, take your Velcro and then sew it onto the folded edge. Once you've done that, flip the fabric around and sew the other end of the Velcro on the opposite end of the material.
- Now that you have the burlap attachment ready, you can put it through the printer to add the text or design you'd like to add to the burlap. There's no limitation to this beyond the size of your burlap strip and the capacity of your printer. However, make sure that the image is going to be printed on the side that you want to face away from the vase.
All it took was a few minutes of your time, and now you have a fantastic addition to add to your vases. If you're interested in doing this fun DIY project but don't have any burlap fabric of your own, take a look at some of IdeaRibbon's quality burlap fabric.
