Burlap: Suprisingly Elegant

Good Monday to you all! I hope you had a great weekend!
We did- lots of rest and a little too much junk food, but whatever...

On Sunday I made a trek to the fabric store in search of odds and ends to make some crafts that have been on my list for a while. New spring fabric for dog bandannas? Check! Fabric for various wedding projects? Check! Felt for backing some retooled brooches? Yep-got that too. And one surprising purchase: burlap. I remember seeing these adorable pennant banners from Funkyshique on etsy a while back and thinking how pretty they were. How brilliant to take something as utilitarian as burlap and make it romantic! I will be making one that says "Just Married" to adorn either our cake table or getaway car!! And then I though how cute it would be to use burlap on the tables to tie in the pennant banners. Plus, it'll make the white china and orange napkins really pop! Apparently a lot of other people had this same idea: I was able to find so many cute examples and even directions to make my own runners on Style Me Pretty. How devine!
