They put together several different projects, so let’s take a look:
First, the team put together a beautiful boxed invitation with a burlap and lace wrap.
An old window and burlap-backed seating charts made for a fun twist on the traditional escort card.
This rustic glam burlap garland would be perfect at the entrance to your venue or strung from chair to chair at a wedding ceremony. And it’s so easy to make!
For a beyond-easy DIY, dress up store-bought pillar candles with burlap and twine bands.
Finally, we had to share this adorable burlap banner:
