DIY Wedding Ideas using Burlap

We've focused a lot on Felt for the past few posts and I'm sure you guys understand our complete obsession with it. Sometimes we go a little over board with the fabric :$ (what can I say, it's a dangerous love affair) So I thought I would force myself to deviate from Felt for a little while and move on to some other materials we equally love and carry in stock (I swear we divide our attention equally between all our raw materials hehehe) I got inspired by a new friend we made on our Facebook page; who asked us to give her some ideas of craft projects she can do on her own for her wedding using burlap! (The Felt Store -Facebook) So thanking her for the sudden need to talk wedding!!
Who doesn't love a little wedding post here and there? Whether it be for your future wedding, a  best friends wedding, or the mere love of wedding inspiration.

All of you are well aware of my love for Pinterest and if you're not this will just confirm my statement :D. Now getting that perfect wedding does take a lot of planning (as I've seen and heard) so thought to give you people out there a little visual inspiration and ideas in one easy and convenient post!

Burlap and weddings are like peanut butter and jelly! I am not kidding, and at first I didn't understand the combination but with some of these ideas, I can see why it's such a popular material to use. There are the usual uses for Burlap you've got the table runners, place-mats and garlands/bunting to add that rustic accent but I want to show you 'out of the box' uses of burlap. 

It's the little details that really create the bigger picture. We found this really cute idea on Style Me Pretty and it's definitely an easy project to do. Round up your wedding party and make an evening out of creating this little heart! All you need is burlap ribbon either glue or thread to create the finished look. Remember you don't have to go traditional! Use colour hearts to go the extra mile. For our Natural & Coloured Burlap Ribbon's

Easily made with just scissors, black paint and burlap. Our Burlap by the Yard is perfect for this project!

Wanting to make sure that burlap goes beyond the wedding day! Why not incorporate it with your wedding party gifts! Consider making an ordinary stainless steel flask into an awesome, customized flask! Spotted on Hair of the Dog, there is no fear that your gifts wont be re-used after the wedding!

A unique and different take on the traditional boutonnière and corsages. Want to keep with the natural look. Tie the Natural Burlap with wheat to complete this simple yet creative idea. To compliment your boutonnières have your bridesmaid wear a pretty burlap flower that can be tied on the wrist or pinned to the dress.
