Burlap Easter Egg Cards

Welcome to Week 4 of my Easter Burlap Craft Series. So far we’ve made some cute table decorations, but this week I thought we would look outside the home for our last Easter Burlap Craft. At this time of year I love to send Easter Cards to those family and friends that I won’t see over the Easter period to let them know that they are still in my thoughts.

So I made these really cute Easter Cards. They were so simple, here’s the tutorial.

Cut an oval shape out of Burlap of your choice. I did two different designs.

To make the aqua one with the ric-rac trim cut two lengths of ric-rac the same width as your oval burlap.

Next I then centred the oval on my card and laid my ric-rac on top. I then stitched around the edges of the oval shape (catching the ric-rac as well). You could use glue – but I’m a sewer so it was just as easy to do a few stitches around the edge.

I then used my quick unpick tool to fray the edges of the burlap. Trim any rogue threads. Done!

For the bow version, I cut the oval of Burlap and a length of narrow ribbon the same width. I then centred the oval on the front of the card and stitched around the edges of the oval shape (catching the ribbon as well). I then tied another 10cm length of ribbon into a bow and centred it on the ribbon and held it in place with a couple of stitches.

I love all things creative and have a passion for up-cycling! This blog details my creative journey with Burlap as I challenge myself to find as many ways as possible to integrate the humble burlap sack into functional and beautiful pieces for my home.
