Funny side story: I had a hard time titling this post. In my head, “lit” burlap garland flowed off the tongue much better than Lighted Burlap Garland. However, I know that lighted can also be used. I even asked my teacher friend, Sarah at Becoming Martha, who was no help! LOL Had to use the power of the Internet to find my answer! Turns out “lit” is if you are using it as a verb. ”Lighted” is when you are using it as an adjective. English lesson = done. You can thank me later.
I love Christmas lights! One of the first things I ever pinned was a post about wrapping ribbon around the wire part of the light string to spruce it up a bit. Since I am going with a rustic Christmas theme this year, I decided to use burlap to create this Lighted Burlap Garland.
Wanna create your own Lighted Burlap Garland?
Here’s what you need:
White mini lights
I cut the burlap into 8-10 inch pieces. Then I cut those pieces down the vertically down the middle.
Choose a pattern you want to use. Start tying those burlap strips around the wire.
Repeat. Over. And. Over.
I sat down and watched Rio with Reed while tying the burlap to the light string. I gotta tell you. It turned out way better than it did in my head! I love how it looks against my mantel decorations!
Isn’t it pretty?
