      Stiffened burlap fabric can be used to create a beautiful rustic Spring vase for flowers.

This project began with a scrap of burlap and a recycled pasta jar. 

It is the 10th of the month and that means it's time to share my project along with the projects of my crafty friends.



The theme is Spring and you can find the links to their projects at the bottom of this post!

First I wiped the jar down with a light coat of baby oil so the fabric would not stick to the jar.

I wrapped the burlap around the jar being careful to create even folds of fabric then secured it with rubber bands. 

I trimmed the burlap with scissors so there was a straight edge along the top.

Next I painted the burlap with Fusion Mineral Paint's Ultra Grip. You can also use Matte Mod Podge

Besides helping paint stick to shiny surfaces, Ultra Grip is great for stiffening fabric and for decoupage.

I let the burlap fabric dry overnight, removed the rubber bands then slid off the jar and painted the inside of the burlap vase. 


I let it dry once again overnight.

The next step was to tie a ribbon with a bow around the burlap.

Then fill the burlap vase with your choice of flowers.

I chose to use faux flowers but if you wish to use fresh flowers just drop a glass inside the burlap vase.

This was a very easy project and can be done with any type of thick fabric. The burlap worked especially well.
