Burlap & Lace Garland

Happy Monday y’all! Welcome to another another beautiful week!

Now, this won’t be just any old week here in the Mercer house … today I’m kicking of two full weeks of {Fall} projects! That’s 14 days straight of all things Fall!!!

As much as I LOVE this time of year, for some reason I’ve never really gotten into decorating for it. But, this year’s a little bit different! As a new blogger, I find myself getting swept away by the excitement and beauty of this Fall decor that’s surrounding me. Fall home tours have been flooding my Facebook feed and lovely Fall DIY’s are taking over my Pinterest boards … I just can’t help myself, I need to cozy up my home too!!! Without a single, solitary decoration boxed up in my basement for Fall, I’m left to craft, craft, craft my way to a warm and cozy Fall home. With a whole house to decorate and Christmas on it’s way soon, I thought that the way to get the best bang for my buck (and my time!) would be to make some Fall crafts that could easily transition to Christmas! So, with this in mind, I’ve tried to keep my colours neutral and re-purpose as much as I can from around the house. Prepare yourselves my friends, with a weekend away and Thanksgiving smack dab in the middle of it all, these next two weeks are going to be a whirlwind!

Here we go!!!

I’ve decided to kick things off today with this pretty little burlap & lace garland!
 
 
Burlap & Lace Garland :: making it in the mountains
 
 
You won’t believe how simple a quick this was to whip up!

I started with an old lace table cloth that I picked up at Sal Val for just $3 (SUCH a score!) as well as some burlap and white linen I had stashed away.

I cut strips about 1 inch wide and about 8-10″ long. I’m not sure how many I ended up with, but there were A LOT!

Then I just started tying the strips with a double knot onto a string of jute. I didn’t bother cutting the jute string until I was all finished as I couldn’t be sure how long this thing would be in the end.

To tie each strip on, I simply folded it in half, held it in front of my string, looped the ends in behind and over the string and finally through the hole creating a double knot around the jute. I told you it was incredibly easy!!! Absolutely perfect for parking yourself in front of your fave show (today it was House Hunters: Renovations) and working away!

I just randomly added pieces from each fabric type and I think it looks perfectly rustic-chic!

I’ve hung it in our front entry way and I really think it’s going to work perfectly with the other shabby-chic DIY’s I’ve got planned!!!

  2. I love your burlap and lace garland! I’ve always loved the two together. I’m working on a white and brown burlap swag to wrap twinkle lights around for our Christmas tree this year. Such fun! I also made a fabric one for my Easter mantel. They really are so fun and inexpensive to whip up. I’m visiting from Art is Beauty and the Twirl and Take a Bow link party. Have a lovely day! ~ Jamie P.S. I’m your latest follower! πŸ™‚

  3. These are so pretty! I could see these being used at an casual country wedding. I just inherited some lace tablecloths and dresser scarves that would be perfect for this project. Thanks so much for the tutorial.

  7. What a nice clean look. I actually have a lace tablecloth that someone gave me and it’s not my style, but I could totally do this and hang it up. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday.
