Burlap Door Hanger Tutorial

After some encouragement from my sister in law, Amy, here is my first attempt at creating a tutorial! I felt inspired to make these Burlap Door Hangers after finding some vintage crocheted doilies at a garage sale. I am going to give them as Mother's Day Gifts. I will save one for my sweet daughter Abigail, to collect her flowers in!


1 Vintage Crocheted Doily at least 12" in Diameter
12" length of Twine String
12" length of White Linen Ribbon (or ribbon of choice for hanging)
8" square piece of Burlap Fabric
Thread/Needle or Sewing Machine (could use hot glue for a No-Sew project)
Small Scrap of Cardstock 1"x 2"
Rub On Transfer (or rubber stamp/ink)

1. Take your 8" square of burlap fabric and fold it in half diagonally to make a triangle.
2. Sew a seam along one of the open sides of your folded burlap piece to form a cone.
3. Turn the piece of burlap right side out so that the seam shows on the inside of the cone.
4. Sew a length of white linen ribbon to the inside of the top of the cone for hanging.
5. Tuck a vintage doily into the cone letting the edges hang over the outside of the cone.
6. Tack (sew) the doily securely to the burlap cone in several places to keep the doily in place.
7. Make a decorative tag by using a scrap of cardstock. Embellish it with a rubber stamp or rub on transfer.
8. Attach the tag to the cone using a strand of twine. Tie it through the holes in the doily. To keep the cone shut so that it hangs better, tie the ribbon through the doily on the front and back of the cone.
9. Fill with flowers!
