Combining two techniques into one creative project.

All using up leftovers and scraps.

I understand incredible cooks make things from leftovers and scraps too.

Wish I could cook that well. 🙂

Anyway, here’s my Burlap Cut out Signs…

How to make burlap cut outs easy and DIY your own burlap and wood signs. Country Design Style

The image above shows the basic steps, but here are the details.

The boards were one from the test of chalky paint with ironed vinegar post.  Click to see the test results and how the boards were painted.

I used the first two boards to make these signs.

Then I added leftover trim to the boards just for detail. {would be cute without the trim too}

For the burlap cutouts, you can read more here, it’s easy to do.

This time I used a small roller to coat the burlap with Mod Podge.  Faster.

Using a bold text, I printed out “HOMER” and BELLA.

Then laying the print under burlap and outlined with pencil the letters.  Cut out.

Then using a craft glue place the letters on the board.

Make sure to spell correctly. :/

That’s basically it!
