Decorating with Burlap Garland

I just listed my burlap garland on
Etsy
. This has been one of my best sellers at the Antique Company Mall. I love all the fun ways to Ella~embellish everything from my booth to my mantel at home. I first started using this ribbon one Christmas on my tree for the nature theme I was doing that year. I later needed a way to cover the lights I had hanging at the top of my booth, so out came the burlap.



My recent display downstairs at the ACM for the McKinney Art Walk. I just tucked short pieces of ribbon here and there for a whimsical look.

Barbara's booth at the front of the ACM. She works the burlap in with a light airy theme.

This is my mantel at home. My house has an Old World feel, so I am working with a darker palette.
The shutters came from Romania and the framed ceiling tin has the original paint still intact and I bought at the Warrenton Antique Show.


I have rusty urns and birds (of course).

My daughter's boyfriend said my mantle tells a story of how the birds came along and knocked the urns over and they are really proud of themselves and are huddled together plotting their next adventure.

Check out my other posts for even more ideas.
