Lots of stuff!
I grew up on a farm. And part of the farm life involved BURLAP! Feed sacks, gunny sacks, grain bags, whatever you want to call it...I loved them, then and now! I have been using burlap in my decorating for years...so imagine my aweshocksurprise when I bust into blogland and tada...burlap is big! It really is a wonderful asset to decorate with...the earthy smell, the rustic look, the rough texture and the endless possibilites of crafty projects that can be pulled off with burlap.
Sooooo to celebrate burlap love and spring's arrival, I thought I would share a fun project with you.
Get yourself some grapevine all rolled up like so
Cut out some 4 x 4 squares of burlap and then unravel the ends a bit
Glue them to the grapevine any way you want
Distress a wooden letter
Glue some flat moss to the burlap squares and then glue your letter (after the paint dries) to the moss
I decided to make a cute little birds nest out of spanish moss and then added that the mix
Of course every nest needs some cute little clay eggs so I glued those into the nest, waited about a half hour, gave it a once over, added some more glue to secure everything and waaaalaaa
You've got yourself a beautiful wreath to welcome spring and all who visit your humble abode!
Happy spring and now...
get out there and create something!
