Of course fall colors were swirling around in my head but then I realized I don't have a "fall" plate setting. What do I have? I have my Crate & Barrel dishes that I have yet to use. They're a white ruffle'y' looking plate and that's where my inspiration came from.
I decided to go with ruffles and burlap. I've wanted to do a project with burlap for a long time and knew this would be perfect. I went to Joann's to buy my burlap and some white fabric, burlap is really inexpensive which I'm thrilled about. (now I can do more projects in burlap)
First I used an old placemat to get the size I wanted. I made it a little wider than normal because I knew I was adding a ruffle to the edge. I frayed the edges a little and made a ruffle out of the white fabric. I then glued that to one edge.
I also made a napkin ring from a tp roll by gluing some burlap around it and adding a small ruffle.
The place card was just a tag which I stamped and tied to a pine cone.
I had made apple crisp for my YW activity so I thought it would be fun to add a single dessert serving to the place setting. I wrapped the jar in twine and added the label.
