Burlap and Lace with Sparkle

Hi Everyone!

Today, I'm creating some quick and easy wedding ideas using trims and accessories from Expo International.

Here's what I received:

When I saw these trims, the colors just said wedding d├ęcor to me.  But, I like a more rustic look , so I decided to add some burlap to the lace and sparkle.

I wrapped a mason jar to hold a bouquet or a candle and made a matching napkin ring, which combines burlap ribbon with the lace and the daisy trim that I received.  I love the fresh look of the daisy trim against the burlap.  It would be so cute for a country wedding or bridal shower.
Napkin Ring and Wrapped Mason Jar
These are very easy to create.  Just cut the burlap ribbon to fit the jar and napkin.  Then, glue lace to the back of the ribbon.  Glue the ends to create a ring, then adhere the daisy trim.

This embroidery hoop orb decoration can be used to decorate the table or hung above it.

To construct this hoop decoration, paint an embroidery hoop white, then sand the edges to show some of the wood.  Glue the smaller hoop inside the larger with hot glue.  Glue ivy and flowers of your choice inside the hoop and on top.  Glue the bird among the flowers inside the hoop  Add pieces of burlap ribbon, pieces of lace and loops of the rhinestone and pearl trim in the top arrangement.  For this hoop decoration, I used the white dove accent, the rhinestone and pearl trim and pieces of the organza and lace trim.

Here are the links to the trims I used:

Krystal Rhinestone Daisy Trim
Alessana 1/8" Rhinestone and Pearl Trim
6" x 5" White Dove Bird Accent

And, there were a few that I received that I didn't use in this set:
