DIY Book Page and Burlap Garland Tutorial

Sharing is caring!

Hi, I am Meegan from What Meegan Makes. I have a small condo that I call my beach cottage in the desert, as we live in Las Vegas and I love the ocean.

I am excited to show you my book page and burlap garland. It is ideal for incorporating with Fall decor or actually anytime of year.

Thanks for having me here Maryann. I am excited to meet your followers. This is so fun!

How To Make a Burlap & Book Page Garland

What you will need to make your own book page and burlap garland:

40 vintage book pages

1/8 yard burlap strips

1 yard jute or twine

hole punch

sharp scissors

Burlap and Book Pages Garland

To make my book page and burlap garland, I begin by folding each book page into a fan. I fold each of mine 3 times, but depending on the look you want, you can make your folds thinner or thicker.

My next step is to punch a hole in the middle of the page, making sure each fold is included. As you can see in the picture above.

Burlap can be a little messy, but if you handle it right, it is super easy to cut and work with.

Using my 3 easy steps, it works like a charm every time.

How To Cut Burlap in a Straight Line

First: Pull a string where you want to make your cut.

Second: Pull string all the way out so you can see a “space” and guide for you to cut.

Third: With your sharp scissors, cut your burlap in a straight line.

Now my strips are really to add to my book page and burlap garland.

Using the jute/or string I slide each folded book page on through the punched hole. YOUR garland can be as full as YOU like.

Fall Book Page and Burlap Garland

About every 4th “fan” book page, I carefully tied a burlap strip. I like how the book pages and the burlap have their own texture.

I just love a good book page project any time of year. This happens to be one of my favorites. I hope you have been inspired to make your own Book Page and Burlap Garland for your Fall decor and for the upcoming Holidays.

I have also made book page flowers and I have other ideas for using burlap.

Thanks for joining me and thanks again to Maryann for having me here today. I am honored.

Make it a wonderful day.
