Burlap Christmas Tree

Yesterday I shared a couple of ideas for creating your own tabletop Christmas trees. Considering the popularity of burlap, I can’t leave these little trees from Ask Anna out of the mix! Anna thread strips of burlap with thin wire and glued them to a center dowel. Fluff them to the desired shape, and you’ve got a fun, natural fiber tree.


Anna was inspired by the Frayed Burlap Trees from Ballard Designs.
