I don’t know about you, but for a while, I was so over burlap. It seemed like it was everywhere, but lately it’s been catching my interest again. Here was my original stamping on burlap post.
I pulled out some letter and number stencils I had (from Micheal’s), some black acrylic paint and my stencil brush and played a little bit. The burlap isn’t going to be washed, so plain paint is fine instead of fabric paint.
I laid out my burlap where I could stretch it out.
And then laid out my message to figure out spacing. I decided on “stay a while” to make into a pillow.
I only have one “A”, so I’ll just move it when I’m done.
I stenciled each letter and then over-lapped them slightly to line them up. I eye-balled it, but you could put down a strip of blue painter’s tape to make sure they line up properly.
It was super easy and fun, so after the first one, I kept going.
I thought this would be cute for newlyweds. You can see how I used the fabric to make a really cute tray.
And then I did a few numbers just for the heck of it.
I think this would be cute on canvas too, heavier fabric or even a lamp shade!
Tomorrow is our favorite flea market find linky party. Even though I didn’t get to do much shopping, I can’t wait to show you the little treasure I picked up.
