Burlap Angels

I believe in angels; I believe we all have our own angel who looks after us. I also think that angels are a great festive decoration so I used burlap and canvas from my kit to make this piece of decor.

CCB Red burlap sheet 12×12
CCB Ivory burlap sheet 12×12
CCB White canvas sheet 12 x12
Dried branches
Cord jute balls natural

  • Use saran wrap to make a ball which you will use as a head of your angel.
  • To make wigs, you need twofold over your fabric into a harmonica and pull it together with a few stitches.
  • Again a few stitches to attach the wings to the angel.
  • To add more Christmas feel, I added a battery operated string of lights.


Little Christmas Village

As you know, I love recycling and I always try to find something “old” to use in my art.
Here, I have used some left over wood pieces – it was perfect for my Little Christmas Village.

For her village, Lena used:
TA DIY Paint Ebony ( black)

TA DIY Paint Ruby (red)
7g Architextures Findings – Iron fence
Cord- Jute Balls Natural
Burlap Flower – Black
Canvas Flower- Red
Tags – Crafty Christmas
White gesso
tags from 7Dots Studio

Lena shares the steps you should follow to make her village:

  • Sew the wood pieces to resemble houses (you can see the examples in the slideshow)
  • Paint the ‘houses’ with red and black Decor&DIY paint
  • Use 7g packages for die-cutting doors and windows
  • Use jute cord as an embellishment
  • White gesso – Paint with fingers; imagine it’s snow.
  • Use a couple of dried branches to add dimension.
  • Fabric flowers will also be a cute addition.

What beautiful and absolutely inspiring pieces of Christmas decor!
And surely, there is plenty more you can do with Lena’s Favourites!!! Why don’t you give it a go?!?
