Glam it up with burlap

Burlap is everywhere, and it can add a warm feeling to anyone’s home.   My home décor is very  “French country” and you will find touches of burlap in almost every room.  Below are some dollar store vases that I dressed up with burlap. To create this look you will need burlap ribbon, adhesive spray and a circular glass vase. (The vases pictured are from the dollar store and the adhesive spray is from walmart).

First step, is to measure and cut the ribbon to fit around the vase. Then lay the ribbon out flat and spray it with the adhesive spray on the non-decorated side. Make sure you cover your table/surface with newspaper so you do not do any damage.  My favorite technique is to lay the vase at the end of the ribbon and simply roll the vase (like a rolling pin). This will insure the ribbon is straight. 

Where the two ribbons meet, you can place lace or buttons to glam it up. Put a candle inside or use as a vase. Voila!
