Burlap Wall Art

(For those who have expressed interest in purchasing one like this, please email me: andrea at lemonadespring.com.)


A few weeks ago, I was getting carried away with various burlap projects. This one I did very much like the Burlap Silhouettes in that I created my image on the computer, this time in Word, printed it off, arranged and taped down my pieces (I used an old poster, still wrapped, as my work surface), covered my work surface in burlap taping it to the backside for stability, then traced each shape (word) with a small craft paintbrush. I then filled in each letter with paint until the job was done. After my work had dried, I stapled it to a frame my husband had made for me a few years ago that had just been wasting away in the garage. Although I still haven't found a good place to hang it in my home, I love how this project turned out. It was a nice and relaxing project to work on.

  1. I love all the burlap projects, but I can't work with burlap. The smell makes me sick to my stomach.

  6. I also love this project! It's beautiful! I purchased several yards of burlap recently, just because I know I want to do something, but I haven't decided just what. This is definitely a keeper!
