Kitty Corner – Gettin’ Crafty: Inexpensive Fall (Burlap!) Decor
I’m starting to get my home decked out a little bit for the fall season, and here’s a simple way I dressed up a candle from the dollar store with a little burlap:
It’s tall, plain and costs a dollar. Perfect, no?
I bought a yard of burlap, held it up to my candle to see how wide I wanted it, and cut a strip.
Pro tip? Find where you want to cut, and pull out that thread. It will help you know where to cut.
I secured the burlap to the candle with a couple extra-large glue dots. Hot glue would work too.
Next, I took some burlap-esque ribbon (bought it at JoAnn’s) and wrapped it around the candle, securing with more glue dots. I then took a length (about 7 inches) of the ribbon, and made it a circle with another glue dot.
I folded it in half, width-wise, and ran a quick running stitch through the ribbon,
I then pulled the thread taught and tied it off to create a bow. I then stitched another small piece of ribbon around my crimp to hold it in place, and wrapped with a bit of hemp string for effect.
Then, I simply secured my bow to the candle with…you guessed it…yet another glue dot! I think it’s super cute!
And the best part it, by using the dots, I can pull the burlap off and re-decorate my candle for another occasion.
What are you doing around your home to prepare for fall?
