Burlap Country Christmas Decoration

Burlap Country Christmas Decoration

This Christmas craft tutorial shows you how to make a burlap rustic Christmas decoration.

What you need

1 mt of Hessian or a yard of burlap or recycled burlap shopping tote.
Cord or String
Small amount of toy filling
wooden or card lazer cut Peace sign
Craft Glue


Using your templates cut out 2 of each shape from your material.

The sewing is done on the outside so it is rustic and visible. Sew it as close as possible to the edge. Leave a gap at the top for filling and sewing your cord or string in to hang up.

For the top piece I used a tree decoration but you could fabric paint or embroider your message. It is much easier if you sew your buttons on, before you assemble the pieces or glue them into place.

I made mine from a recycled hessian/burlap shopping bag and cut it into two pieces.
