Welcome to the Beautiful Burlap Blog hop.
Burlap is all the rage right now and like everyone else we're crazy about it too.
so we have gathered to create some awesome things with it. Hope to see something you like along the way.
Today I have created a banner for my mom.
I have a ton of white burlap, silly me bought like 3 yards of the stuff. Doesn't seem like a lot but its 3 yards by like 2 yards wide, so I'm gonna have a lot to create with it.
any way for this banner ..
I used Freezer paper, my cameo, Martha Stewart craft paint, and iron and a foam brush,
to assemble it, I used hot glue and 2" ribbon or maybe its 3"
you will want to iron your burlap smooth so that its easier to work with
first thing you need to do is make the Letters, using the freezer paper with the shiny side facing ur cutting mat cut out your letters spaced far enough apart to give you room to trim around them.
using the negative of your letters place them on your burlap. iron them down and it will sick to the burlap like a sticker. once they are stuck to the burlap you can use a foam brush to pounce the paint on the burlap.
I used two coats of paint to fill in the holes of the burlap.
once the paint was dry i removed the stencils.
to attach the ribbon i got out my trust hot glue gun. i lined up the ribbon and folded it in half, glued to the top and pretty simple.
once i hung it on the wall i tied a bow on each edge and wa la
sorry my moms room isn't equipped for photos so its pretty dark photo.
Another tip, when cutting burlap if you can use a rotary cutter, you will have less fraying.
