Burlap and Ribbon Memo Board

The little memo board above the desk of Gina from The Cannary Family was overflowing with pictures and other mementoes. Fortunately, Gina had a large bulletin board in her garage that was practically begging for a makeover. Gina gave it the Ballard treatment with burlap and upholstery tacks but then also added a French memo board twist by creating a design with ribbon. Gina’s new board doesn’t skimp on style or space!

Stenciled Burlap Lampshade

Traci from Beneath My Heart was flipping through her Pottery Barn Kids catalog when a burlap lampshade caught her eye. And… surprise! It wasn’t because it was exactly what she’d been looking for and knew she could make it for less. On the contrary, Traci had already created almost identical lampshades for her boys’ room three years prior! Pretty striking resemblance, eh? Traci can proudly say, “Pottery Barn copied me!” {Giggled}

Burlap Easter Napkin Rings

You may remember the bunny ear napkin rings shared here on KOD a couple of weeks ago. Well, Trish from Uncommon Designs also couldn’t pass up on the adding some major cuteness to her table this Easter with a set of the napkin rings. Trish’s technique results in a seamless finish with bunny ears that are super sturdy and will not fray. Plus, she says they are easy to make and may not cost you a penny if you’ve got the materials on hand like she did!

Burlap Message Board

When her husband needed a message board for his home office, Emily from life{illustrated} searched the internet to find one that wasn’t too “pretty.” A burlap covered message board with nail head trim was perfect for the space and crazy easy to make using a thrifted $2 bulletin board. I love what Emily has to say here about not spending more than is “absolutely necessary” on material items. It is hard to fathom spending tons of money on a memo board when you can get something similar for a few dollars and a little creativity!

Burlap and bunnies come together again in these festive napkin rings made by Deneen at Dreaming in Color. Deneen made them at no cost using an upcycled wrapping paper tube and burlap she already had on hand. The sweet little bunny ears bring a smile to Deneen’s face and will surely delight her guests at Easter brunch!

Burlap Easter Flag

Yes, the temperature today is in the thirties, but all the bunnies and eggs around make me feel like spring is on the horizon! Susan from Sunflower Hugs used materials she had on hand to create this burlap Easter flag with a bunny silhouette applique. Pottery Barn’s flag is already sold out, so Susan points out that you will have to DIY if you want to get your hands on one. Thankfully, Susan makes it easy on you with her tutorial!

Burlap Rosette Lampshade

Crystal from Homemaker in Heels made a plain lampshade resemble a beautiful bouquet by covering it in burlap rosettes. The rosettes are crazy simple to make, requiring just a little rolling, twisting, and gluing, but make a huge visual statement.  This is a great way to salvage an old shade that is showing some wear and tear or discoloration. All covered in rosettes no one would ever be the wiser!

Reupholstered Deconstructed Ottoman

After attempting to recover an ottoman that she received from her sister, Jen from The Yellow Brick Cottage nearly gave up and threw it through the window. However, a search on several of her favorite furniture sites turned up an ottoman that Jen knew she could recreate and add her own style and personal touches to. I admire Jen’s ability to adapt and switch gears when her original plan was not panning out. She did an amazing job achieving that deconstructed look and ended up with a piece she can love and enjoy!
