Joann Fabrics. I wanted to wrap it around the bottom of our Christmas tree bucket. I loved how it looked all month and then, when January came and the tree was gone, I didn't want to put it away.
So I kept it out, just waiting for another excuse to use it. I finally found one when I had to make the flower arrangements for a friend's baby shower. I cut little pieces off of the big one, but there was still a lot left.
I was overcome with the urge to make a curtain for the shelf above our washer and dryer.
I checked my fabric shelves for a piece that was large enough, but the shelf is 72 inches long and that would be a really long fabric scrap. Then the burlap caught my eye. I knew what I had to do.
Hanging it was tricky. I attached five ribbon ties to the back and tied it to the shelf, but that wasn't enough to keep it taut. I added a few clips along the back and that helped, but I am still brainstorming better ways to secure the curtain to the shelf front.
After this project, I have a medium sized piece of burlap left. It is currently in use as a table runner, but I'm already thinking about what I could do with it next!
