DIY Holiday Decor with Burlap

Here at Paul Michael Company, we think that burlap simply doesn’t get enough credit! While burlap sometimes gets a bad reputation, this fabric is actually one of our favorite materials to use for DIY holiday decorations! Here are just a few reasons why we love to decorate with burlap during the holidays:

  • Burlap is easy to find and inexpensive!
  • It’s versatile; burlap can be used for everything from wrapping presents to creating a festive tablescape.
  • The neutral color allows it to complement any color scheme and interior design style, from refined rustic to vintage-chic.
  • Burlap adds wonderful natural texture to interiors and decor.
  • Last but not least, burlap is an all-natural, renewable fabric, so it’s eco-friendly!

For inspiration, here are 6 ways you can achieve designer holiday decor with burlap:


1. Make burlap bags with ribbon and holly that are perfect for holding seasonal potpourri or even small gifts.

    I was at the nutcracker market in Houston and fell in love with a chair you brought. Nobody knew the price. Could someone contact me concerning a linen looking tall back chair. (not the super tall back). Thank you
