Farmhouse Christmas


Yes...that's Burlap Strapping!

and crazy me... I decided to use it for decorating this year...


I cut it apart...


And strung it on the Christmas tree


Added a little light...


Nestled it into a Western Stoneware Crock


And I'm on my way to my version of a farmhouse Christmas.

Can't wait to get the ornaments on!

I'm linking up to Cottage Instincts Make it Monday, Between Naps on the Porch, Sew Chatty, The DIY Showoff and The Creative Girl.  Go check out some more great decorating ideas!

  6. Love that strapping. I cut strips of burlap last year for my tree and loved it. The ornaments were pinecones and ribbon to hold them on. Very 'rustic' looking. Can't wait to see your tree complete.

  13. That is so crazy ... I just used webbing on my tree today too (http://6dukes.blogspot.com/2010/12/december.html). I hadn't seen anyone else who had used it! Guess great minds think alike. I absolutely love how mine looks.

  16. Love it and I'm going to steal it! Great idea and I have a roll of burlap straping to do it with....you are so clever, and I confess, I would have never thought of using it to trim the tree. But it is perfect! Thank you.

  18. Oh, this looks gorgeous! I'm now really torn about whether to use burlap ribbon or upholstery webbing as a garland this year. I was leaning towards the ribbon, but after seeing your nifty use of a half-width of it, I don't know what to do! :)
