Burlap is a durable industrial fabric that can be recycled into elegant decor. Pillows made from burlap are commonplace, but this fabric is starting to show up in unexpected ways.
There are thousands of ways burlap can be used around the house, as table cloths, upholstery, even wallpaper. Burlap is cheap (2 yards for $6.50). It's easy to find at hardware stores, and you can transfer print onto any section to personalize your fabric.
Burlap can also be eco-friendly if you use recycled material. Used bags can be found in your grocery store produce section or try local farmer's markets and feed stores.
