Burlap Silverware Holders

I’ve got a really fun & trendy idea for you today! Using the fabulous 2.5” burlap ribbon to make silverware holders!

I used some silverware to determine my size- the burlap ended up being a little over 13”. Since it’s wired it holds it shape, and is already finished on the sides- EASY!

Here comes the hard part- which ribbon to embellish it with!!  🙂

I ended up choosing the 7/8” lace. I simply pinned the edges & lace in place to machine stitch it together. I love that these could be used for any season as is, or that you could add a little twine for a fall feel:

Or how about some pearls for a shabby chic look:

Or you could tie a sweet tag on with some twine!

I really do love how these turned out! How about you? Can you imagine how easy it would be to change your accent ribbon for a different look?

Thank you so much for your time; I hope you’ve been inspired!

    OK, Jen!  Super cute!  I've worked with burlap before and like the idea of using the ribbon so the edges don't fray.  Nice!
