Hope ya’ll are not tired of my burlap projects.
DIY burlap coasters, stools, lampshades and more
These rice bags all were FREE!
My FIL asked a grocer friend of his if he could have the bags when they were empty.
Certainly, he said here you go.
I suggest asking your local grocer if they too have any rice burlap bags.
I love em’ and can’t come up with enough projects for them.
Let me show you real quick what I have done so far…
This was my first project…
diy burlap seat covers.
All I did with these was buys some foam, cover it in burlap and staple to the chair pad.
JUST that easy!
These stools had a wicker, very uncomfortable seat.
Then from there I made my lampshade from left over scraps…
Mod podged on.
Mod podged on.
A no sew valance in the laundry room
Still some scaps left, so
I decided to mod podge and burlap the top of this mini trunk..
I still have scraps left so today I decided just one more small project….
I had these coaster for sometime now.
They never were my style.
Today I used some cork board to cover the top of the outdated coasters..
I hot glued the cork on top of the original coaster.
I then cut the squares to size and mod podged the burlap on the cork.
How easy was that?
They now sit on our coffee table and if in need of a coaster…

and my other diy projects above.
I am all over that. Love your coasters. What a great way to use up burlap and re-use something else. I am so jealous of those rice sacks you have. Everything you’ve shown is great.
Did you make that chicken sign? I’m a chicken person, have quite a few on top of my kitchen cupboards. Love your chicken lamp also.
Wonder how somebody could get some rice sacks? I have to find the rest of your 20+ burlap projects.
I was at Hobby Lobby last week getting some burlap and while the clerk was cutting it she asked me why people are so crazy about burlap so much. I told her about several projects I’ve seen using it. Told her about the wonderful blogs to get fantastic ideas for using it.
I was very fortunate to find a coffee sack at local thrift store last week. I took the back off the bag to use for pillows and table runners. My bag is alot darker burlap with a tighter weave and a softer texture.
I’ll cut the back of bag into 4 pieces, put a transfer on lighter fabric then onto the burlap. I use the iron-on tape. Love Aleene’s tape but it’s a bit pricey for me and not that much of it.
Love your blog.
These are so cute! Thanks for sharing!
Love your pretties!!
