:eek:

Hancock fabrics is closing down a store. I go in to find that the 45/48 (?) inch burlap is on sale for $1.21/yard so I buy $20 worth. Seemed reasonable at the time.:D


I figured I could cut some patterns out of it and attach the pieces to the front of the house, I don't know, like fake scroll work or something.

Anyhoo, what else can I do with this stuff? I have a lot of burlap to work with so let the ideas fly!

Thanks for your support.:rolleyes:

Lots of people use burlap for their monster mud. With that much of it, you should be able to make something about 20 feet tall!!!!! :p

Thanks for the great suggestions. Please keep them coming.

Jeff, what exactly do you mean by "back lighting". I know it is probably obvious but can you give me an example? Thanks

is it black or what? i've never seen black burlap. anyway, you can "distress" a bunch of it (shredding and cutting it). and hang it from the windows, hang some from the porch bannisters?, bushes, around the front door? lots of options.

Yes, it is black. The store had some other colors also.

At first I was thinking I just went overboard but at that price...what the heck? I think it can unify everything?....maybe?...kinda?....hmmmmm....

I can see it now... 1 week after Halloween... the decorations all packed away... Bayou sitting in the living room, looking at the bare, un-burlapped walls, drinking a White Russian...

"Man... that burlap really tied the room together..."

:smoking:

I have used regular brown/tan distressed burlap draped over furniture for a number of Halloween parties. It's a great way to turn a new room old quickly and cheaply. No reason that black burlap couldn't achieve the same result.

And yeah Revenant, you're so on. I remember nights after my Halloween parties after removing the burlap thinking how much more character the stuff gave my room...haha. :)

Yep, that is what I thought you meant but my brain is functioning on about 2 hours sleep. Easy things just don't make sense at the time. LOL!
