Holiday Craft: Burlap and Glass

I’m digging burlap these days, so I’ve been looking for places to use it.

For a little texture combined with sparkle, I decided to put burlap bows on tall glass hurricanes.  But try tying a bow around a glass cylinder….it doesn’t stay in place for long.

Plus, I wanted more than a bow – I wanted them to look like Christmas packages.

So I used packing tape to stick the burlap to the glass.  It’s clear, after all!


I just cut some narrow “ribbons” out of burlap and used the tape to stick it to the glass.

It was quick and easy enough to do while sitting on the floor with Avery (all my projects for a while will be this quick and easy! For better or for worse?)

My assistant...and my child!

Then I finished it up by Gorilla gluing a burlap bow on the front.

Burlap “wrapped” glass – super quick and easy!

Throw some filler in the cylinders or a pillar candle, and you’re off to the races with a rustic (and easy, cheap, and FABULOUS) new holiday decoration, if I do say so myself.

Thanks for stopping by!
