Burlap wrapped candles

Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's out there. I'll be off to see my own in a bit. I just wanted to quickly share my update to my spring centerpiece. When I took down the Easter decorations, I wanted to leave out my tray and ruffled burlap runner. I just wasn't sure what to replace the Easter egg topiaries with. This is what I came up with:

Everything was on hand. I didn't go out and buy anything. The hubby had given me a roll of burlap a while back when I was looking for burlap. I wanted yardage and this is a rolled strip, a lot like a jelly roll of fabric. And it's treated and feels gross! But I held onto it anyway, just in case. I used these strips to wrap some candles. I used just a bit of hot glue to hold in place. Then I tied ribbons around each that coordinate with my runner. Quick, easy!

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be linking to these great parties:
