In my last post I created a romantic rustic wedding mood board. In that post I included a picture of a burlap ring bearer pillow that I created using our 9" wide burlap ribbon and today I'm going to show you how you can make one of these yourself. 

Supplies: 9' wide burlap, 20" of natural twine, scraps of quilt batting made into a 5.5" by 5.5" pillow form, sewing machine, needle and thread.

Step One: Cut two squares of burlap measuring 9" x 9". Centre and sandwich the quilt batting pillow form between the two pieces of burlap.

Step Two: Using a sewing machine, sew a square around the quilt batting pillow. Trim the burlap approximately 1" from the stitching. Using a sewing needle and thread, sew a couple of stitches in the middle of the pillow to create a tuft and attach the twine.

Step Three: Tie twine into a bow. 

When you are ready to add the rings on your wedding day, simply untie the bow, slip the rings onto the twine and re-tie the bow.

The "ring" that I used in the original photo is from Brilliant Earth. Of course, you would add both wedding bands to the ring bearer pillow and not the engagement ring!
