I’m also thrilled to be joining 5 other great bloggers to share our holiday burlap DIYs! 

These simple burlap ornaments are an easy sewing project

These were a super quick sewing project that makes a big impact on my Christmas tree!

Materials needed:

Tightly woven burlap
The ornament template (below)
Cotton Stuffing
Sewing Machine
Neutral Thread

Use stencils to cut out your desired shapes from burlap squares

Start by downloading the Burlap Ornament Template here.

Once you had the template downloaded, you want to cut it out on cardboard or thick card stock. Cut your burlap so that there is about an inch of burlap at the edge of the template on all sides.

All you need for this project is some burlap sheets and some ribbon

Next, put both layers of burlap together, and pin your template to the centre of your burlap pieces.

Pin the star template to the burlap so you can sew it in place

Next, cut 6 inches of ribbon, fold it in half, and pin it in to the middle of the ornament, between the two layers of burlap, so that you you can sew it into place.

Add the ribbon to the burlap ornament template

Use your sewing machine to sew along the template, leaving about an inch open to allow you to stuff the ornament. On the star, I just left one of the entire sides open.

You can see (vaguely) where my strings start and end below.

Leave a little bit of room as you sew around the template so you can stuff the burlap

Then stuff away! Making sure that you add enough to fill the unseen part of the ornament too! Then sew up the open edge.

After stuffing the ornament, cut around the edges leaving about a half inch of room

Once you are done sewing, cut around the entire edge of the star,leaving about 1/2″ from the line you sewed. Do this all the way around – and make sure not to cut your ribbon!

Cut around the edges of the ornament

Finally, fray all of the edges by pulling them apart by hand. Sometimes you will have full strings come loose, which you can cut off with your scissors. Let the little pieces stay off, and just pull the attached pieces away from one another.
