I am generally not a huge fan of color. I love black and white, gray, and recently taupe, but I’ve never been big on bright pinks or highlighter yellows or pastels. While I totally cherish Christmas and holiday decorating, I also love the idea of decorating with neutrals. My lack of a love of color is probably why I absolutely adore burlap in all of my Christmas crafting!
Shabby chic crafts are becoming more and more popular with each passing day, and one of the best ways to achieve a rustic look is with burlap. These 21 Christmas craft ideas are a fabulous way to get started with your burlap decorating. Even if you like color a little more than me (and you probably do), you can always use colored burlap instead. 😉
