I love seeing the burlap wedding theme and trend happening. Last year I thought I was thinking out of the box when I created a whole party around burlap and was buying it by the bulk; boy was I wrong.
I was buying the rough and rustic burlap at the local garden center, and the more refined and soft burlap at the fabric store. I used it to make burlap covered candles for favors, I used the burlap to make table cloths and runners, I made burlap bows for wreaths, and cut strips of burlap for the Christmas tree. One thing to keep in mind is that burlap is biodegradable, earth friendly, and inexpensive. It is perfect for a green wedding or green party.
