Mason Jar Monday #3... Burlap Roses Ornaments...

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...

Cut them.

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.

Thanks for stopping by...
