I've made banners using burlap. Love all these ideas! Pinning for Christmas!

I have been using burlap to make sall Christmas gift bags for years. I love the look and ease of sewing. I also make burlap Santa's and angels. It comes in such wonderful colors now. M

Burlap is a very durable material and very natural looking. I think crafting with burlap is a great idea.

I have not tried burlap, it never seemed a good idea-however, after seeing these ideas, I have a new respect for burlap-just great!

Burlap and denim bags.

I have not used burlap in my crafting projects yet but after seeing the Poinsettia Burlap Wreath..I think I'm going to give it a's gorgeous (and I don't like poinsettias very much, so that's saying something)

I love the look of burlap wreaths. Since most of the time I put them on the outside of my door, I feel like the sturdiness of the burlap holds up more than other materials.
