DIY Vintage Burlap and Lace Door Decor

Burlap!  Oh .. I just ADORE you!
Here is my Burlap and Lace Vintage Door Decor
Pin It
Want to make one..?!?   Here's how!
Sewing Machine
Beads or Rhinestones
Wood Dowels

Start by creating your bag.  
I cut a long strap and then cut my burlap in half and cut a regtangle.
Next I sewed the edges of the strap so that it would not fray too much.
Then I sewed the bag together with the bottom edges pinned in leaving about an inch at the top open.
Next I folded over the top and sewed across it and the handle to back of the interior of the bag.
Then I had a whole bag ready for decorating!
Next I made a lacy ruffle on the sewing machine,
which I then Hot glued to the bag.
I also added another piece of lace ribbon and a ribbon flower. 
Then I used my Cricut to cut out a stencil that said "IRWIN  EST. 02"
Then I stenciled it onto my bag.
While the bag dried I created my flowers from lace, ribbon and scrap fabric which I glued to wood dowels. 
Then I put them in the bag
And hung it on my front door.
I just love it.. not a wreath.. but something a little more unique!
Oh.. I also shared some of my scrap fabrics to make this Mason jar flower bouquet for a Friend's birthday!

    And there's nothing more beautiful than fabric flowers! I love them!

  4. My glue gun and I are currently not on speaking terms after he (yes HE) nearly burned my fingertips off. If we were on speaking terms, I would dive in and make this really adorable bag and flowers. For now, I'll just have to admire most of your other projects :)

  5. I love this, and I even have the stuff to make one. I have a link party on Wednesdays, and I would love it if you would link this post. It is called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party. It is opened until Sunday night.
    I hope to see you there. Have a great Day.
