The Many Uses of Burlap

Though the traditional use of burlap was for sacks, it has been transformed in the crafting world as a delightful accent. Burlap adds a perfect touch of rustic and can be used in a wide array of projects! Below are a few uses of burlap that we love.

1. Candles.  Adding a strip of burlap to candles can make them feel both rustic and chic.
