The Burlap Craze

If you've been on Etsy lately and looked for burlap door hangers - you've seen the burlap craze!  I've seen tons on Pinterest, too.  I did a tutorial for the CSI Project featuring a 'knock off' burlap project a few weeks ago showing how I made mine, BUT someone left some nasty comments about copying the daughter product.      This world of crafting is crazy huh?  I mean, I'm just a girl from a small town and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to single handedly (is that even a word) take down this girls business.  The comments were pretty much telling me how wrong it was that I would, not only, copy the item but then tell other people how to make it.  So, I'm not going to tell you how to make it.

But I am going to show you what I made and I think that's okay!

First, I made a football to celebrate football season. 

I also did this one for fall for my mom's birthday.

And the back can be used for Halloween!

I've already sketched out a dozen ideas to make as gifts for Christmas, Teacher gifts and baby showers.  I'm actually doing one right now to match my cousin's baby's room and another to hang in our window on our next trip to Disney! Any guesses on what that one looks like?

Here's a couple more:

I can't wait to do a few more - if only my paint would dry faster!!

Sorry you got nasty notes from inconsiderate people! I, as a DYIer, appreciate your tutorial. But for those people who don't want to make it themselves, they can purchase it from you, etsy, or even a big name vendor!

Yay! You know I love these! I definitely want to see pics of the others....especially the one for Disney. We are hoping to head that way in January! Thanks again for the great ideas! :)
