At Home: Using Burlap

I love when things look finished...a good paint job, a dessert table, a scrapbook layout!  Everything around my home...

I picked up a couple of mums this weekend at the grocery store.  I knew we were hosting Nathan's party and thought they would add a bit a fall. 

When I put them out on the front porch, they looked like this:

pretty...but I hated the plastic pots!  I didn't have much time to replant so instead, I jazzed up those plastic pots with a bit of burlap.  Burlap is using to find and is cheap!

Here is what I did:
Cut long pieces of burlap, wide enough to cover the pot and long enough to wrap around and secure.

Grab the piece and wrap it around the pot.  If I had enough, I would have just tied the ends around the back!  Instead, I gathered the ends and overlapped them.

I grabbed a large safety pin (because I am all about pretty and easy!) and pinned the ends together!

To hid the ugly pin, I just flipped up a piece of burlap and tucked it over the pin...

Same pots, with a bit more class and a bit more interest:

And my front is a work in progress!  Pumpkins are needed!

Regardless, the burlap wrapped mums are pretty!  It is amazing how such a simple trick can make such a big impact!  It doesn't take a lot of time or money to make improvements!


Thank you for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous day!
