Miss Haberdash Christmas....burlap

It may be a little early for most but my Christmas countdown is well and truly underway, so welcome to the first of my Miss Haberdash Christmas decorating posts, and I'm starting with burlap!

One of the big trends for Christmas this year is Scandinavian style and nothing says it better than burlap. With it's rough texture and natural colouring it's a perfect fit with a rustic Christmas theme.

I'm sure you're all familiar with burlap or hessian, it's a woven fabric usually made from the skin of the jute plant and comes in many guises such as fabric, string or ribbon.This year it's taken a more sophisticated turn with geometric patterns printed on to natural ribbon in metallics like copper and gold. Burlap ribbon has long been popular overseas but you can also find it locally, Riot Art & Craft even have it in shocking pink. But a word of advice, a little goes a long way, keep it simple.

Plus points - it won't break the bank and it's incredibly versatile. With a little imagination it can be used for gift wrapping, tree decoration or even bunting.
