With this hot summer weather, we are dreaming of cold winter nights next to our fireplace. Okay that may have sounded super pyro- don’t worry, remember my hubby is a fireman? Tee hee. I mean who doesn’t love the smell, sound, and warmth that a fire brings to the home?? Sign me up!!! The only part I hate about making a fire is the part where you have to tip toe out to the cold crisp air to grab some more wood from the pile. I wanted to create a little carrier to make that task a little easier and more efficient- so here is what I came up with. Of course it had to be cute too!

  • Durable fabric/canvas
  • Two branches about 2″ thick and a foot long
  • Needle/thread
  • Scissors
I found this fabric in my craft room so I decided to upcycle it! First cut your fabric into a rectangle with two flaps on each side to create the handles of the carrier. You want to make sure you cut straps out that are long enough to wrap around the branch. Then do a quick stitch with needle and thread to secure the branch to the fabric, creating a little hammock.
See, it’s like a wood hammock!
I love how you can easily recycle scraps into something amazing! Now it’s super easy to fill my bundle and it folds up nicely to store by the fireplace, score!
Is it time to cozy up by the fire yet?!
