Flower Storage Hanging Bag:
This is one I made, so instructions are below

I saw something similar a couple year's back to this bag so I decided to make my own version!  I purchased 1 yard of burlap fabric for $2.99.  I then cut the fabric into two pieces, each in a squarish "U" shape.  Matching them up facing inside out, I sewed the 2 sides and bottom on my sewing machine leaving the top open.  I then turned the bag back outwards and folded down the top.  Using a black sharpie and this stencil for $1.50 (on 50% off week) I formed the Welcome on the front.  I also used some extra burlap to make a small hook on the back for hanging.

Once the bag was hung, I just ran to the Dollar Tree to purchase a bunch of fall floral and stuffed it inside.  I used newspaper at the bottom to make the bag look full.  Overall, total project cost me about $20.  The great thing about holiday decor though is you can use it over an over each year!
