I am loving the burlap trend! I have a huge burlap snowflake on my front door right now that I'm going to hate to take down very soon. I am shopping for something cute for spring to replace it! I did my Christmas tree with burlap garland and bought new burlap stockings. I use burlap for my table decorations anytime we have a party or get-together.
I decided to experiment with some burlap and canvas. I painted the canvas a taupe/tan color and then wrapped it completely in burlap. All of the staples are on the back and don't show. Next, I painted whatever lettering I wanted. I do have to use more paint than usual. This stuff really soaks it up! Finally, I added some burlap flowers using a good fabric glue. Viola! Burlap beauties!
This one is a surprise for my Pay It Forward participant #2 - Lindsey Chambers! It has already shipped out to her and I hope she loves it!
This was my very first burlap experiment and I am so happy with how it turned out - sweet and simple. It shipped out to my Pay It Forward participant #1 - Brittney Hodges. She got it, loved it, and blogged about it here. I was so glad to hear that I made her day!
How cute would this little 5x5 be in a wreath?
I am taking burlap canvas orders. They can be done on any of the sizes listed in the sidebar and those prices apply. Thanks!
