Clearance Burlap Bags

While in Home Depot once again, I walked by the after Christmas clearance Poinsettia plants and hanging on the rack by them are these cute burlap bags for less than a dollar each. The inside is coated with a water proof substance since their original use is for the Poinsettia. I decided they needed a face lift.

Added a wood label and upholstery webbing for a plant container. http://www.lifeatthecottage


Covered the handles with ribbon, added two ribbons and a flower on the body of the bag. A wood tag completes this look.

Besides their original intended purpose these bags can be gift bags, Easter baskets, ways to organize many items such as mail, cosmetics, craft supplies, and so on.
