burlap art DIY

Burlap is still hot in home decor, and it's such a versatile medium to craft with!  I saw these adorable customized monogram prints at Pottery Barn Kids, and decided to make my own version.  I recycled an old art frame and repurposed a burlap bag to create an inexpensive version of a high end product.  Here's how:

Project estimate:

  • Burlap, $1
  • Frame, on hand
  • Stencil, on hand
  • Paint, on hand
  • Tape, on hand
  • Hot glue gun, on hand
Total:  $1 and up
step one
Step one:  Place the frame on the burlap and trace the inside of the frame with white chalk.  This will help you keep your project centered.

Step two:  Use the stencils and paint to add the monogram and phrase to the burlap.  To avoid paint "bleeding" under the stencil, use a foam roller or pouncer to blot paint onto the surface.  Do several light applications until the color is the way you want it.
Step three:  once the paint has dried, add the burlap the the frame.  I used a hot glue gun to adhere two sides, then I folded the corners like a present before gluing the remaining sides down.

Step four:  I added the white border last because I wanted to make sure it was centered.  I used washi tape to mark where the line was to go, then painted the burlap with the white paint.

This custom wall art would look great with a photo wall collage.  It would also make a great anniversary gift, or even a cute customized gift for a new baby.  Since you're making it yourself, you can put any name, phrase or color you want on it, and make it for a fraction of the name brand's price!
