Fall Decoration

Posted by Donna:

I had so much fun making this for my front door this weekend. I'm not a great decorator, but I get such an enjoyment doing things like this---it's a lot of self satisfaction. Of course, a lot of it, too, is that I can't go out and buy everything I see--I have to make a lot of things myself, but I do love doing it. I should have been cleaning my house, but things like this are so much more fun!!!!! I knew my "dirt" would still be there.

To make this, I sewed a long pocket out of burlap--then folded the top over to make a flap. I probably should have used orange, yellow, and purple for the greenery, but I really liked these "sprigs" from Hobby Lobby. I think the brighter colors would have shown up more from the street, but these look good from the front porch. The netting is a dark purple-y brown that matches the darker sprigs. Larry had to help me get the wire secured the right way. What would we do without our husbands?

Happy Fall!!!!!! Pin It Now!

I just got some burlap too! Who knew that stuff would come back into style? I remember it was the main bulletin board background at church in the 70's. Cute decoration!

Thanks!!! I've seen burlap used as tablecloths, stenciled pillows, runners, bows tied around planters--just all sorts of ways. What are you going to do with your burlap?
