As promised last week, I am going to show you my book page and burlap garland. It is ideal for incorporating with Fall decor or actually anytime of year.
Making a Burlap and Book Page Garland is easy and fun to make.
What you will need to make your own book page and burlap garland:
40 vintage book pages
1/8 yard burlap strips
1 yard jute or twine
To make my book page and burlap garland, I begin by folding each book page into a fan. I fold each of mine 3 times, but depending on the look you want, you can make your folds thinner or thicker.
My next step is to punch a hole in the middle of the page, making sure each fold is included. As you can see in the picture above.
Burlap can be a little messy, but if you handle it right, it is super easy to cut and work with.
Using my 3 easy steps, it works like a charm every time.
First: Pull a string where you want to make your cut.
Second: Pull string all the way out so you can see a “space” and guide for you to cut.
Third: With your sharp scissors, cut your burlap in a straight line.
Now my strips are really to add to my book page and burlap garland.
Using the jute/or string I slide each folded book page on through the punched hole. YOUR garland can be as full as YOU like.
I tied a burlap strip at the each end of the garland.
About every 4th “fan” book page, I carefully tied a burlap strip. I like how the book pages and the burlap have their own texture.
I just love a good book page project any time of year. This happens to be one of my favorites. I hope you have been inspired to make your own Burlap and Book Page Garland for your Fall decor and for the upcoming Holidays.
Make it a wonderful day.
