These decorated burlap bags make great gift bags for wine or whatever. The only thing is.....they're almost too pretty to give away!
How To Decorate Burlap Wine Bags
See what I mean. You could just use the bags as decoration. Put an empty bottle in one or several and sit them on the kitchen counter or foyer table.
The burlap bags were a bargain at 50 cents each. I found them at a local flea market/antique shop.
I pulled out my stash of fabric trims trying to decide how to decorate the bags.
I also went into my junk jewelry stash and pulled out things I thought might work on the bags.
I laid out different ribbons and trims on the burlap bags along with pieces of recycled jewelry until I came up with the perfect look for each bag.
I used hot glue to adhere everything to the bags. The pink lace trim was so light and thin I used a toothpick to put small dabs of hot glue between the burlap bag and the trim.
For the earring I placed a large dab of hot glue on the back before placing it on the top of the lace.
For bag number 2 I selected blue ribbon. I ran a small bead of hot glue on the back side of the ribbon.
I thought about placing pompoms in a straight circle all the way around the bag but decided that would just look tacky. Instead I hot glued a pompom to each end of the tie.
For bag number 3 I cut rick rack to size then hot glued the strips all the way around the bag.
I love rick rack. Maybe because it was so popular when I was growing up in the “old days”.
I decorated the bag with 5 strips of white rick rack. The vintage faux pearl and gold tipped earring was the perfect finishing touch.
