Silver, Crystal, Burlap & Chalkboard Place Setting

Pin It

With the Burlap Month party & giveaway coming to a close on Wednesday, 
I still have burlap on my mind!


I crafted this burlap candy ornament and burlap chalkboard place marker this weekend.


They are easy ways to welcome your guests and share a handmade ornament for them to take home.


If you are feeling extra sweet, 
breakfast in bed for your sweetheart on Christmas morning might be another idea.


Don't get your hopes up too much, honey. :)



For details on how to make the ornament and place marker,
