Décor is a key part to any wedding. With more couples going 'green' and getting creative with their décor, we are seeing the popularity of unique materials being used. One unique material that has been a fast growing trend is burlap. This tan, woven fabric is made from a jute plant and is a great choice for decorating the wedding reception.
From favors to table decor, burlap can be used for many wedding accessories. DIY brides may consider purchasing burlap to make their own decor:
Use an ink stamp to create your own seal or couple design to 'stamp' on burlap accessories
Tie burlap around couple's chair and use as chair sashes
Wrap around vases and tie with a rope to carry the rustic wedding theme to your table decor
Plant wild flowers in burlap satches and line your ceremony or reception's walkway
Make a burlap wreath, adorn with both your initials and hang on the ceremony or reception door (makes for great rustic home decor after the wedding!)
