Burlap Flowers and Glass Blocks

As you know, I bought a burlap coffee sack.  I covered my office chair pad with some, created rose art with some, and now, I used the scraps for flowers and candle embellishments.  I LOVE BURLAP.  I love the texture paired with white. It looks like summer to me.  Below you will see my burlap inspired glass block and some candle arrangements  




As always, I start with mini Christmas lights in my block.



These are so cool.  I bought some red ones at Christmas and was so excited to see these on clearance.  Just $1.99.  I bought three bags to fill a large glass block.




Aren't they pretty?  I then wrapped the block with jute/twine and added a strip of burlap for texture.  I made a large burlap flower, added white flowers I got at Target, and a beaded hat pin.




  


I really like the way it turned out.  It looks a little summery.

That is my favorite burlap flower right now.  They have so many tutorials on burlap flowers, I won't go into details.


I love these candlesticks.  I got them at Savers for such a small amount.  I can hardly wait to use them for Christmas.  



More burlap flowers, rosettes this time.






These are some candles wrapped in jute with the same white flower I used on my block, it really sets off the white candle.





I have a couple more things with burlap before I am done, so, please come back and see.
