More things to do with BURLAP COFFEE BAGS

HI EVERYONE... 
...hope things are going good for you this week.




 I pulled up a few really cute ideas to use BURLAP COFFEE BEAN BAGS from Pinterest.



I  love this curtain over her kitchen sink...

This would be very simple to do....

and a great change for the kitchen or even a bath, I think..




Cute little monogrammed PILLOW BOOKENDS.
Bet they are filled with little sand bags.







I REALLY like this idea of adding texture to your rooms.

I have another coffee bag that I will use to make this when we get moved.








I just LOVE these wine bottle bags.

I love the different colors of straps here...and the little babbles hanging on some of them.

You could really use your imagination on these and go totally wild.










NOW....THIS little
GARDEN SCARECROW is just about the ca-ut-tes thing I've seen in a long time.....

At first look, I thought, "Holy Cow, I'd never be able to make him"......

but once I REALLY looked at him closely, I don't think he would be all that hard to create. 

He would be so adorable in a pretty garden....:) Give it lots of personality.

















So far, the little stool is all we've done with a burlap bag....
but, I sure intend to do more.








Here's that cute bag that Jill of
 HOME A LA MODE 
made ......

her instructions on making it are HERE.


She and her company are generously giving away ONE COFFEE BAG to one of my readers.

I like the scare crow. And I was in Hobby Lobby yesterday and saw a lot of burlap pillows and accessories. I thought of you, but I didn't have a camera with me and I didn't think to use my phone. But - the next time you go, look in the garden section at all of their burlap accessories.

I love burlap. I do..but my pretty table runner and chair tiebacks are all I probably will ever have. You found some adorable idea's though..No kitchen windows..no garden.. :(
Now I'm all sad.

P.S. Do you have any cupcakes just laying around? I just KNOW one would make me feel all better..
