I think I have pretty much finished decorating the outside of my house for Christmas. I have strung my lights a little bit differently than other years. I’ve dragged out a couple of boxes and picked out what I want to use this year. And one of the new items I decided to try is burlap.
In one of my shipments at our store several items were wrapped in burlap. My first thought was that I would just toss it. Then I thought about wrapping it around an evergreen shrub we have for winter protection (though I am starting to believe it is already dead). But then when I got it home inspiration struck! Use it to decorate for winter!
I tucked it into a couple of our window boxes and added some pinecones that I have gathered over the years. I usually fill the window boxes with greenery but I am liking the change!
Then I used another piece to fill a wire basket. Again I added the pinecones and used a backdrop of a child’s sled. Add a little greenery and it’s done.
I’m kinda thinking that burlap has a permanent place around here!
