{burlap ornaments}

It's that time again! We cut down our tree yesterday, and today was the tree-trimming party. What fun we had, on both accounts. Now it feels like Christmas!

Every year I like to add a few homemade ornaments to the tree, and this year I made two different kinds. One was more of a makeover (see the next post), and the other was a continuation of my love for burlap, foam stamps, and all things monogrammed. I love love love how they turned out!

Burlap Ornaments


-foam stamps
-craft paint
-hole punch


-Cut your burlap into desired shape. I traced a cornmeal container (the perfect size!), and it worked well.

-Punch hole in the top of the circle, being careful not to get too close to the edge.

-Apply paint to the foam stamp (I use my finger--it's easier to control the amount of paint), then press gently but firmly onto the burlap. Let dry.

-Thread ribbon through the hole, and add any other embellishments you wish. (I added two ribbons, and a small safety pin.)

-Thread the jute through the hole, making as big of a loop as you would like. Tie in a knot at the top.
-Hang on your tree! Super cute!!

My bff also saw THESE on another them!

Super Cute! I bought a roll of burlap to do some Thanksgiving decor but life got in the way, so I am looking for ways to use it for Christmas!

Alright I am dying to know where you got your adorable foam stamps. I've seen you use them on a couple of projects and I've only found a couple of boring sets at Michael's. I love yours!!

Alison & Amy--

I bought mine at a scrapbook store several years ago, but you can find them online. They are by Making Memories, and the font is called "philadelphia".

Good luck!
