I came across this gorgeous teal burlap and thought Id give it a go. I also purchased white pom pom trim to go along the bottom of the curtain.
First thing I did was fold my burlap in half, I purchased a yard and a half and planned on making 2 panels. The easiest way to cut burlap is to pull a strand all the way through, it will make your cut straight.
I then folded the edges and ironed them down, this made it easier for me to sew.
I then sewed the pom pom along the bottom of the panels
As for the doilies they were an after thought, I had to make a second trip to Joanns for more pom pom trim and ended up purchasing the 2 small white doilies thinking I would use them for a banner. Once home I realized they would look so darling against the teal burlap. I already had the other 2 doilies!
I opted to glue the doilies on instead of sewing them. The reality is sewing them would have been such a pain and you can never go wrong with hot glue.
Im so happy with the way they turned out, they matched so well with the flower market sign I already had hanging and those sweet blue mason jars.
What do you think? Please free to comment and as always thanks for checking in.
