PRIMITIVE BURLAP BAGS & Peonies


Monday Morning....
Good morning Ya'll!
I'm up and at'em but barely...

Last week I made these cute little natural burlap bags for my Booth#555.

With this first set, I must say I cheated a little. I ordered a few pre-stamped bags, size 12"x8", to see how they were going to turn out as bags. They already had the designs on the front but the next batch I am going to paint as well. 

Here they are flat when I got them:


They were open ended on one end. All I had to do was 
-stuff them 
I used the brown paper sheets that you wrap breakables in. You could use tissue paper or even computer paper too.
-seal up the top

I used a mini stapler. You really can't see the staples that much and it was fast.


-decorate with rusty stars
Tie on some bakers twine

And just staple on the star by the bakers twine
and add a price tag.

DIY Mason Jar Tags
 I used some Mason Jar Price Tag Labels that I made in an earlier post here.


And on the old crow one, I added a strip of homespun fabric:


All finished and priced for $6.99 each.


Here are the plain ones waiting for me to paint up and stencil for an upcoming post:
These would look great tucked in open shelving or cabinets around the kitchen and dinning room.

I priced these cute, natural burlap bags, size 12"x8" 
for $6.99 in my Booth#555.

Where would you place these cute, burplap bags?
Happy Crafting Ya'll.

 And since it is really starting to warm up around here, I am getting into the flower mode big time. 
I'd like to share a photo of one of my Peonies. This is from last year, 2014. 
I've only had them a few years and last year was the first year they really bloomed so much.

Yesterday, I gave this little flower garden a makeover because the house is getting redone on the outside now, finally! So I have done away with the landscaping blocks and white gravel and gone to landscaping timbers, lattice and brown mulch.I can't wait to post more pics of it already! I'm loving the more country, woodsy look.
Keep posted for more updates!!!

  6. Can't wait to see how the stenciling goes. I bought burlap fabric a long time ago to try to stencil but never did get around to it. I love the stuffed burlap bags and could see them displayed in a big wooden bowl or used as decorative pillows in an old rocking chair. :) ~maggie
