Pinterest Projects

Last week, I completed two projects that I had pinned on Pinterest.  I, of course, combined several blog post ideas and did my own thing for the burlap runner.  The runner is ruffled at each end.  I'm not sure if I will leave it on the dining table or move it to the buffet upstairs. 

I also made these Aged Paper Number Wraps.  I printed the numbers from
and followed her directions.  It took about 15 minutes for my paper to dry in the oven, but times will vary.  I then wrapped them around some battery operated candles to avoid a fire hazard.  They look really neat with the candles lit, too.
Thanks for stopping by!
