DIY Burlap Wrapped Jars

In this post: how to make farmhouse-style burlap wrapped jars that can be used as vases, or storage and organization.

I sure hope you like burlap, because for the second week in a row I’ve done a DIY burlap project! That’s just how it goes sometimes, I suppose. But you don’t mind, do you?! I’m sure you like burlap – after all, what’s not to love about it!? {That is a rhetorical question, BTW!}

DIY Burlap Wrapped Jars

This particular project is so easy it almost seems silly to post it! But I worked on it, it’s a DIY and it’s currently sitting up on our faux mantle. So post about it I will!

I quite like the texture (of course!) and the painted numbers speak to my love of typography and numbers.

DIY Burlap Wrapped Jars

What you’ll need:

  • glass vases or jars
  • small amount of burlap (depending on your vases)
  • numbers stencils
  • paint
  • stencil brush
  • hot glue gun

Step 1. Cut out burlap to size for your particular jars.

Step 2. Position your stencils on each piece of burlap.

Step 3. Using a stencil brush, dab paint onto burlap through stencil. Let dry (this doesn’t take very long).

Step 4. Wrap burlap around vase/jar and secure with a bead of hot glue. (Not Shown)

I’m loving these little vases! You?

I'd love it if you'd share:

      It is easy enough for just about anybody! The trickiest part was hot gluing the burlap around the vase!

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Decorating is not as complicated as it once seemed!

I love your easy process to determine my style. I've also learned that my style has changed over the years and seasons of my life and that decorating properly/successfully is NOT as complicated as it once seemed!!!

Filled me with the confidence I need

Oh Shannon, thank you, thank you thank you!!  I wish I could download you and take you with me, but your Decor Staples Checklist has definitely given me the guidance and filled me with the confidence I need!

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.


I love your instructions!

LMAO!! I love your How Not to Paint Cabinet instructions! It made me laugh with good humor! Kudos for sharing your lessons learned!!

Done with Haphazard Decor!

I'm so done with Haphazard Decor! (Yes, I think I just made that "style" up). Thank you for your style quiz!


So Accurate!

I thought the quiz was so accurate, I want my friends to do it. I feel I like such a mix of things and the quiz described them all so well!

Before I felt overwhelmed by my clutter. Now, I feel like I have a trusted friend alongside me to pull me out of my paralysis with a fresh mindset!
