What would you do with. . . a yard of burlap?

This time last year we were working on packing our apartment and getting ready to move to our house!  Our closing kept getting pushed back, and so by the time we got in and got everything painted, it was time to set up Christmas.  I've been looking forward to fall decorating ever since then.

So when Aubrey suggested burlap, I was excited to make a decoration for fall. 

I picked out this darling burlap with gold foil circles, only to discover it was $15 a yard!  Eek!  I hoped that I would have enough for a little triangle garland if I just got 1/3 of a yard.

Enough and then some!  Why do I always think I need so much more fabric in the store than when I get home???  And it turns out I have enough for several!  So I would like to give two away.

If you're interested in making your own, there are LOTS of tutorials.  I will tell you that I made my triangles five inches across the top and six inches from top to bottom.  

Anyway, on to the pictures:

Aside from the fall decorated shelves, we've got this fun action going on on our door (they didn't stick to the wall very well.  Falling spiders, that wasn't freaky. . .)

    1. I did, but I couldn't use it because it was marked $1 off!! So it was $14 a yard instead. Wow, such a great deal. . .
