I shared this tutorial over at Positively Splendid and want to share it with you all as well!
Burlap Christmas Art
Would you like to see how to create your own?
Here ya go!!
-Wood or Canvas (I already had the wood)
-Stencils (I created mine using my Silhouette)
First, cut the burlap the same size or a little smaller than your wood.
Make the edges as straight as possible.
Pull the end pieces to fray the edges to your liking.
Paint the wood or your canvas a background color.
This color will border your burlap when complete.
Then, use spray adhesive or spray mount on the back of your stencil and place on your burlap.
Begin to paint.
Make sure you use the “Pounce” method so paint doesn’t get under your stencil.
I wanted to add some words to my paintings as well so repeat the same process with the spray mount.
Be sure to save any centers of your letters and spray those as well to place in your stencil!
The reindeer burlap all painted.
To mount to the wood, spray the back of the burlap with spray adhesive.
Place on the wood and smooth out flat.
I also glued some buttons or brads in the corners to make it look like those were holding down the burlap.
Here is the finished reindeer.
I created a Christmas tree one as well.
Hang them on the wall and you have some cute and easy Christmas art!
