Make something Monday: 5 Easy Burlap Crafts

Let’s chat for just a minute about burlap and all the cool things you can do with it. Burlap is a nubby fabric with a lot of weight and texture. It fits right in with my farmhouse style home, which is a good thing, because there is burlap ALL over my house.

I thought I’d share five of my favorite burlap crafts with you today. Of course, these are in no particular order. They were also pretty cheap and easy to make.


  1. Cover old books with burlap

Covering old books with burlap is a great way to add some texture to your bookshelves or mantles. You can then use the fabric covered books as risers to add height to your decor. These old books were purchased from the thrift store and used as risers for this “plant.” You can read more about this project here.

2. Framed Burlap Art

Did you know you can print on fabric? You can, and you can even do this with a desktop printer. I downloaded a graphic from Wedding Chicks and printed it onto my burlap. Read about it here. 

3. Clip frames with burlap backgrounds

I also created some clip frames with burlap backgrounds to go with this. You can read more about how I created this project here. 


4. Burlap table runner (No sew)

I simply cut this burlap into a strip to create this table runner. No gluing or sewing was involved. In just a few minutes, I was able to get a cute table runner that goes with my farmhouse look.

5. Farmhouse inspired burlap and lace candles

Most recently, I’ve created these farmhouse candles. They were simple, cheap and easy to make, and I made them with materials I already own. You can read about how I did it here. 

I’m sure I’ll soon have more burlap projects to show you. Have a wonderful Monday!
