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!

Amy from Mom Advice put the finishing touch on her daughter’s bedroom update with a girly lampshade. Amy refabbed her daughter’s previous shade by covering it with burlap and then adding all those glorious ruffles that make it so much fun. I love the choice of the burlap with its texture and slightly frayed edges.

If you are one of my regular Infarrantly Creative readers, then you know I have a thing for counting down to a special holiday or event. Last year I created this advent pillow cover as another way to enjoy the anticipation of counting the days until Christmas. I love how pretty it is, and my kids love moving the candy cane to a new pocket each day!

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.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Burlap and Plaid Stockings1_thumb[5]

For Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict nothing says Christmas like red and green plaid. Debbie paired this holiday classic with some burlap for a “cozy and rustic” décor theme this year. Some stockings from Ballard provided the perfect inspiration for Debbie’s DIY version, which she created for FREE using scraps she had on hand. Debbie’s whole burlap and plaid mantel looks amazing, so you’ll definitely want to check it out!
