Shabby Chic Burlap Pencil Holder
i have childhood memories of making holiday presents out of burlap! too funny that it's making a comeback! this project is simple to make and the results are beautiful. i love how the silver from the tin can shines through the burlap. have fun creating this easy project...
here are the materials you'll need for the project:
|you'll need burlap ribbon, nice that it comes with finished edges!|
i found it on amazon, here is their link, Burlap Ribbon
|love this ribbon. i found it on amazon, here is the link, Rose Ribbon|
i know you are wondering who eats pepper pot? that would be my brother who took the photo!
of course nice ribbon
i used these pins, here is the link, Pearl Pins
the directions are pretty straightforward. cover the soup can with burlap by gluing (may use a hot glue gun) a line along the top and bottom of the can. your can will look like this.
next glue on the rose ribbon to the top border of the can...it will look like this...
next make a bow and attach a rose from the ribbon on the front. glue the whole ensemble with pearl pins onto the front of the can. that's it, you're done and ready to use it for holding pencils, pens or whatever!
