Burlap Monogram

I am absolutely in love with any craft involving BURLAP right now. A touch of burlap adds the perfect amount of rustic appeal to just about anything! It’s a neutral color, so it goes with all color schemes and its versatility allows for it to be used in many different ways. Besides its use for sack racing, burlap can be used for furniture, banners, weddings, wreaths, curtains, bows, and so much more! Oh, and did I mention burlap is not just an eco-friendly fabric option, it’s also super inexpensive?!

My most recent burlap project is a monogrammed canvas. I am thrilled with how it turned out. 

You Will Need:

Canvas {I used 12×12} – $6.99

{1/2} Yard Burlap – $1.50

Black Acrylic Paint – .22

Paint Brush – $1.99

Staple Gun – $7

Letter Stencil – free
 

To create my stencil, I used “Times New Roman” font, and blew it up to size 800. Once it was printed, I very carefully cut it out.

 and taped it to the burlap so it didn’t move while I painted.



Time to paint!



Let it dry for a few hours before removing the stencil.



Make sure your letter is centered on the canvas before you start stapling…



ta-da!


 The perfect addition to our guest book table!

And now it hangs in our living room.
