Burlap and Birdies

I have a thing for burlap stuff. 
It is the color and texture that I adore. 
I also love birds. 
 My English friend swears that birds
are not good luck to use as decoration in the home. 
 I say who cares as I love the sweetness they add to home decor. 
 I saw several creative gals use burlap to wrap candles
and just felt I had to have my way with this fabulous idea
and add my spin.

 supplies I purchased today...
Yes, moss ribbon...fabulous new crafting item.
My first candle, lavender and lilac scented...
Tall burlap wrapped with moss and a silver birdie!
Medium sized  with the same elements.
Why not paint a birdie, dry brush and add twine and a little silver charm?
My new collection to inspire Spring to come our way.
I see all kinds of possibilities for summer, fall...
For right now, I am hoping for Spring.

  2. These turned out amazing! It's so cool how a fun charm can completely transform a look from causal to elegant.

  3. Moss ribbon??? OMG!! TY TY!! Your candles are gorgeous! I am wrapping candles in burlap today too...coincidence, no??

  4. Molly, I love it! Can you tell me where you get the moss ribbon. I think I want to moss ribbon everything I own. It would be great for a woodland type theme.

  5. I don't believe in "luck" so I decorate like crazy with birds! They're so sweet and comforting! I especially love the candle holders you made with the purple accent. Lovely!

  6. I think they are cute! I've never heard that birds are not good luck, oh well they are cute anyway!

  7. Pretty! Everything is SO pretty!! :)

  8. all my bird decorations are the cause of me never winning the lottery? Wish someone would have told me sooner- I could have saved all those little dollar bills and kept on decorating with birds :)

  10. I love them all!!! Now I want to make some. Where did you get your moss ribbon? And was it expensive?

  11. I purchased the moss ribon at Joanne's. it was expensive but currently 30% off. I think $5.99 for 48 inches.
