One that I can use for fall | Thanksgiving and take right into my Christmas decor…..
and today was the day.
This is all I used.
Burlap ribbon, small | medium-ish pinecones, twine, needle & scissors.
I cut the burlap ribbon into strips so I could fold it over about 6 times.
Each fold is about 3 inches wide.
It’s not an exact science.
I did not measure once.
I just eyeballed it as I went.
I used 7 strips of the folded burlap ribbon & 8 pinecones.
I simply threaded the twine thru the middle of the folded burlap
And then wrapped it twice around each pinecone, leaving it a bit loose.
You can decide how tight or loose you would like it.
Simply alternate between burlap & pinecones & then tie knots at each end.
I love how it looks.
Simple. Rustic. No fuss.
But at the same time it finished off the mantel perfectly.
I got my burlap ribbon at Michael’s a few weeks ago when it was 3 rolls for the price of one.
Not sure if the promotion is still running but thought Id share.
