Hi all!  I hope this post finds you having a great Sunday with your family!  My family is super busy with make-up baseball games right now since it has rained for the last three weeks but I have still managed to sneak in some craft time!  My latest project is another revamp.  You may remember my Decoupage I posted a few months ago.  Well, it’s not that I don’t like it, it just wasn’t the look I was going for in my bedroom.  It was nice while it lasted but I had a lightbulb moment one day that I couldn’t ignore!
This is what it started as….
It’s no secret we are big fans of burlap right now!  You just can’t beat the price and I love the texture for this time of year. 
I purchased each canvas at Hobby Lobby for $5.00!
I used this Easy Tacker that I purchased at Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon for $4.00…
to staple the burlap around the back of each canvas.  I started at the top and bottom by pulling tight and stapling as I went (so easy).
I then moved on to the sides making sure to fold the corners very clean and secured them with staples as well.
Now for the stencils!  Since Santa has not brought me a Cricut Expression yet I had to get clever and make my own LARGE stencils! After scouring google for a large letter to no avail, I retreated to my Microsoft Office Word for help!  I opened a new document and inserted word art.  From there, I chose my font (Script MT Bold), typed the letter I wanted, sized it and clicked print!
I cut out the letter from each page to form a stencil.  A little dry brush of Americana Burnt Umber Acrylic with a stencil brush…..
4 nail heads hammered in the corners, 2 in the center….
and a bow stapled to the back for hanging make this project complete!
Before….
After!
I used the same hooks that I bought for the Decoupage for $3.00 each at Hobby Lobby!  The burlap was under $2.00 per yard and I used just a little over a yard!
The T is for our last name, the a is for my name and the j is for my hubby!  I love my new Burlap Wall Monogram!  You can’t beat the price and I love the texture it brings to my bedroom!
Don’t Forget!

  1. Well, I would say that it's fabulous, but I've come to expect nothing less from you two!! I have a stenciled monogram above our bed too, but mine is stenciled on a thrift store wooden plaque that I painted over. love love love the burlap version!

  2. You girls sure love your Burlap!! I'm right there with you. How did we ever live without it!!!
    Thanks for the great ideas! Keep it up!

  3. Girl…I love it! We are kindred spirits. I have bought 5 yards of burlap from HL this week! I just finished a burlap project and have three more in the works. I am a "burlap babe", or maybe a "burlap beauty"? I prefer the last one.
    Great job!
