Burlap Napkin Rings

Burlap is very popular fabric for decorating right now.   I have been loving the pictures on the internet of burlap flowers, and really wanted to give it a try.  So I picked up a roll of tree wrap at Home Hardware.  It is 8″ wide, and perfect for my project.  I envisioned having to buy a huge roll of burlap and never use half of it.  However, there are lots of sizes out there…check them out.  The Dollarama probably has it too.  ;0)  That same day I picked up a roll that is 20″ wide, as well.  But that is another story, for another day!!
To make the rosette part of my napkin ring, I cut off a piece of the roll 20″ long, and divided it into three strips lengthwise.  This makes three rosettes.  I took a needle and thread and just ran a line of stitches down the middle of the strip.  I then pulled the thread to gather the burlap into a little rosette and stitched it so it would not “ungather”. 
You can then attach it to anything you want.  For this one, I wrapped a strip of burlap around the candle, and then stitched the rosette onto the burlap. 


This is the one I made into a napkin ring.  You just cut a piece of burlap as wide and long as you want.  I made mine 7″ long so there was some extra space to overlap to stitch the ring together. Stitch the rosette onto the napkin ring!  (press the “easy” button!!)

They would be sweet stitched onto a hat, a cluster of them on a canvas bag, or stitch a safety pin onto the back of one and wear it as a fall pin on your jean jacket!!  Too cute!

I did a fall tablescape with these little pretties…
I think you will like it!

Alycia Nichols - You did a great job with your napkin rings! A really, REALLY great job! I love the look of burlap and the rough-yet-soft feel of it. I have yet to see it at the hardware store, but probably because I’m not looking in the right place. I have purchased it at the fabric store, but it was much wider than I wanted to work with. You’ve given me a good tip on where to look. Can’t wait to see your table with these cool napkin rings in use next week!
