Burlap is the new black, which means we are adding pretty little accents to our assortment to make sure you have this season’s trend in your craft closet.
Incorporate this earthy trend into any style or project. Think natural napkin holders with modern flair, tailor stems of your bridal bouquet with chic detailing, or liven up a vase with a folksy wrap! DIY invitations and gift wrap look great with woven texture.
Like burlap, jute and other natural fibers add a rustic touch to cards or vintage detailing to a package. Modern looks can come alive with this natural fiber too. Here, Kin Community walks viewers through the Paper Source Maritime Knot Accent, which features red jute cord.
What are your favorite way to use burlap and jute?
Show off your nautical side with this maritime knot accent. Fashion your own accent using our red jute twine and a few twists. Follow the photos below to create this gift wrap accent or modify for a DIY bracelet or decorative embellishment.
First determine your use and cut two strands to accommodate the item you need to wrap, so that together the strands will fit your item. Add an inch or two to assure you have room to finish. Then add more strands based on the desired thickness of your knot – we used six strands, two groups of three.
Smooth out your loose knot, laying each strand of cord flat and making sure there are no tangles. Then, slowly pull the ends to tighten your knot, adjusting the strands as you pull to make sure they do not overlap.
In this execution we took the loose ends around the box, crossing on the bottom and pulling around to the sides. To keep our nautical theme going we secured the sides with another maritime knot. (No glue or tape needed!) We finished with a anchor rubber stamp that we heat embossed on a Chalkstock gift tag – perfect for your favorite sailor!
