Looking for an unusual floral centrepiece for a wedding, shower or party? 

How about this burlap tote bag centrepiece? It's super easy to create. Add a chalkboard tag to the handles you can write a table number or a simple message.

Here's what you need to create this simple centrepiece in 15 minutes or less:

I filled one of our tall square glass vases with water and flowers and placed them inside a small burlap tote bag. Then I tied one of our new chalkboard tags with jute string to the bag handle. A simple vintage paper flower that I made and glued to a clothespin was clipped onto the jute as an extra detail. 

Lorrie's tip: It's easier to write on the chalkboard tag before you attach it to the burlap bag handle. If you want the handles of the bag to stand up straight, you can add a piece of wire into each handle for support.

Burlap and chalkboards are popular because there are so many ways to use them. Just like a pair of jeans and a white tee shirt ... they never go out of style and you can dress them up or dress them down depending on how you accessorize them. 

If you like burlap and chalkboards, you are going to love David Tutera's Casual Elegance Collection. We just received our first shipment of this collection and as expected, it is selling quickly.burlap packaging ideas from Creative Bag Co. Ltd
 If you are looking for something that looks diy but actually is not -  there's lots of that in this collection. Like the burlap and lace guest book and matching pen above.

Create your own custom message burlap banner using the pre-lettered burlap pieces that are in the burlap banner kit!  Just string the banners together and off you go! 
Don't waste time looking for vintage looking frames for table numbers at antique shops and second hand stores when you can purchase them in packages of 4. Three sizes of lace paper lanterns will glow in the dark when you add LED lights on a string. Anything on a stick is a good idea and I think that you will agree when you see the two different sizes of chalkboard signs in this collection. Hemp cord will come in handy for lots of diy projects.
