Can I share a secret with you all?
I love burlap…..and lace. Today, I am sharing an easy burlap and lace tablecloth wreath do-it-yourself project. I was inspired by this Halloween Ribbon Wreath from Landeelu.
Wayfair decided to host a Great Craft Swap with the Wayfair Homemaker Bloggers to celebrate National Swap Day-September 9th.Woot! Woot! Participating bloggers were allowed to choose from 4 items and I was selected to make a craft from a tablecloth.
Wayfair sent over this lovely white damask tablecloth to create a craft with. I am really looking forward to fall and because I love burlap and lace, I thought I would mix them together and this wreath is what I came up with.
- white tablecloth
- burlap ribbon
- lace ribbon
- burlap embellishments
- straw wreath
- glue gun
Start by cutting your tablecloth in quarters. Then cut 2″ strips of cloth about 12″ long. I wanted to use a wider strip of fabric to show more of the damask pattern. The wider strips also filled the wreath surface to just let the straw peek through.
I then began to tie each strip to the wreath moving all the way around. I left space in between for the burlap and lace.
Cut the burlap ribbon and tie into place. I use two different kinds of ribbon. Each was 3yds in length.
Add the finishing touches with the leaf and flower embellishments. Hot glue worked best to adhere these pieces. I love the burlap leaves, so adorable!
Isn’t it great? I love the texture and soft details. And the fun thing, you don’t really know it was crafted from a tablecloth. I have so much fabric leftover…I can’t wait to make a few more of these!
Now, because this was a craft swap, I had to send this off to a wonderful blogger! And, guess what I received in return?
These lovely dish towels. And how did she know that I loved aqua? Oh my goodness! Time to break out the bottle of wine and celebrate! Thank you Rachel for creating these lovely towels.
I really hope you enjoyed the wreath!
Thank you so much Wayfair for sponsoring this fun craft swap!
