How to make a cute Fall to Christmas burlap fabric chain….

I’ve seen many versions of paper chains but I’ve never seen a burlap fabric chain, and I thought it would be a great way to transition from Fall to winter and even onto Christmas. How awesome would a really long one be on a tree?!

Right now,I thought it would be super cute on my mantel and could change over easily!

How to make a burlap fabric chainI first took a 1/2 yard of burlap and used this same method to stiffen the fabric that I did to make my plaid leaf banner so the links would keep their shape.

Using this method they are less likely to unravel as well. It made about 20 links and about a 3 foot chain.
