This Merry Christmas ribbon on burlap couldn’t be easier and yet it packs a huge punch in my Christmas decorating.
- Easy Gardener 4″ Burlap Strip in a roll ($20, available in the fall)
- Toll Craft Paint
- Plastic Wrap
- Small Foam Roller
- Paper Plate
- Stencil (2 sheets photo paper)
- Xacto Knife
I rolled out blue plastic wrap and taped it on my island to protect it. Then I rolled out the burlap and laid the stencil on top. I only taped the two ends but held the stencil down as I rolled the dark gold paint over the stencil. Gently lift the stencil and place down in a new spot. Repeat over and over and over again. Don’t worry, you get really fast after a few Merry Christmases. Oh, and clean up is breeze, just wrap up the wrap and it’s a wrap (OK, I’m over doing it a bit)!
As the paint dried, I hung the ribbon from the island to the cook top and back and forth. Once it was dry, I rolled it up while I decided what do use it for. My Very Merry Christmas Tablescape was the perfect place to try it out.
Tucked into my Christmas mantle.
I have used it in just about every part of my Christmas decor this year. Look for it in my up coming Christmas Open House.
