I love the burlap trend that I am seeing grace parties and weddings everywhere. Think beyond potato sacks and get creative! There are so many ways you can use burlap for your next gathering, whether it’s a dinner party, wine tasting, children’s party or wedding. The natural color and texture add charm to any setting. Plus, burlap is biodegradable and inexpensive.

There are a wide range of products now available for home decorating and entertaining made of burlap. Why not use a burlap runner for your dining table. This printed one is gorgeous. A simple, plain one would be great too, because you could use it everyday or for a variety of events. These embellished votive holders are simple and darling. And present your utensils beautifully in a basket dressed up with a burlap liner.

When I spotted this burlap wine carrier on Etsy, I knew I had to share. I wouldn’t mind carrying this into a party at all. It’s so stylish and functional!

What to wear? If I’m hosting a gathering, I always like to coordinate with the party. While burlap might be a bit uncomfortable to wear, linen is a great alternative that keeps with the style. These espadrilles are on my list for sure, and this dress looks cute and comfortable.

I’ve come across so many exquisite weddings that feature this natural fabric. In the right setting, burlap gives rustic weddings a dose of charm. Burlap is commonly used to create bunting for wedding and party decorations. This customized monogrammed version is adorable. The wrapped monogrammed vases would make lovely centerpieces.

For you crafty types, burlap can be purchased by the yard or as ribbon. Think of the possibilities! I love these placecard/favor boxes dressed up with burlap flowers. And the “love” favor bags would be perfect for a shower or wedding.

I recently created several projects for HGTV using burlap. In case you missed them, you can learn to make a knotted burlap wreath and how to dress up a burlap pillow cover. Perfect for the holidays and everyday entertaining.

Have you ever used burlap for an event or home decorating? How did you use it?

    They're not burlap, but along the same lines: I use the cloth painter's dropcloths as curtains in my daughter's room, shower curtain in the bathroom, and as a rustic tablecloth for the kitchen. They're cheap and they look wonderful! I also use the burlap bags from basmati rice as shopping bags and to hang on the back of the bathroom door to hold sundries.

    we dyed 4 yds of burlap a burnt orange color. Then wrapped it around a 4×8 sheet of trimmed up luan board. It went up on the wall. Next we mounted 3 20×20 framed nature prints. It's a great way to get color on the wall without painting. We get compliments all the time.

    Does anyone know how to keep burlap from shedding? I'd like to use it to cover a head board. Would gently washing/softening the burlap material work? Or is there a spray like sizing? Thanks for your help!!
