Little burlap bagsOctober 25th, 2011 in member junk
My junker friend Carol asked me to make little bags out of a vintage burlap sack to be used as Christmas tree ornaments. They are for a tree will be part of the annual Festival of Trees at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, MN. As a fund raiser for Hiawatha Homes, local businesses and organizations decorate trees that are displayed at the Civic Center for a week or so in a “Christmas trees forest” before being sold.
The theme of Carol’s tree (sponsored by her employer) is vintage-reuse-repurpose – just what I would expect from a good junker! Carol may embellish the bags a bit. They might also be used to hold treats. Other ornies for her tree include small wheels and sandbakkel (pastry) tins. I am anxious to see what else she uses!
My next task is to make a no frills-no ruffles-very plain tree skirt from a couple other vintage burlap sacks.
