While I was in Michael's this summer I picked up a couple of rolls of burlap ribbon that were on sale.
I used it for the fair to wrap my frappachino bottles.
We like to use all the same jars so we can find our entries more easily.
After the fair, I took most of them off the bottles which left me with a bunch of burlap ribbon pieces 10-14 inches long.
I love to take materials from one project and use it for another....
so I made some Burlap Rose Christmas ornaments.
These have french page leaves.
I picked up some little french books at a local college book sale.
They were already falling apart so no worries about using them for this project.
I wanted to share a quick way to make leaves with a circle punch.
Cut out your circles.
Then put your circle back in the punch.
You can see the leaf shape...
Turn your circle and cut some more.
I made simple twisted roses with the burlap and a hot glue gun.
I added a piece of jute twine as the hanger and two french page leaves to each rose.
I glued one to the lid of the jar which I had already painted with DecoArt Chalky Finish paints.
These will be so sweet on someone's Christmas tree.
They transcend all the seasons so they can be used anywhere, anytime.
Boy, I did not notice that little string tail.
Now it needs to be clipped...
These tuck sweetly into the jar.
I plan to make many more for my next two Christmas shows and a few for Etsy.
What a charming rustic gift for Mason Jar Monday.
