Stencil over Burlap – love it!

I was inspired by another crafter to paint and stencil over burlap sooo…

  • Dollar Tree 6”x 6” sign with beaded hanger (Love these – they come in natural wood and black)
  • Christmas tree wood cut out – come in a pkg. of 5, I think)
  • I have a stash of burlap bag so used a piece of one
  • Missouri Limestone Paint Company chalk-style paint “January” (or any brand of white chalk paint will work)
  • Farm cow image printed on card stock

I hot glued the burlap on the back side of the sign. Worked well but next time I think I will use Emer’s adhesive spray. You could turn the sign back around later and have a different sign so I might glue burlap on both sides next time and do a reverse stencil of some kind in the natural burlap for a different look.

Update: I did do the back, too, stenciling a farm cow. I now have 2 signs in one!

I used the natural frame. I dry brushed a bit of white paint over it and the beads for a little different look.

I then used scotch tape and taped the Christmas tree onto the burlap to help hold it and daubed white chalk paint all around the stencil and the burlap.

That’s it! How cute! You can hang on the wall or even on a tree. These would make cute stocking stuffers Zoe Christmas gifts. Great project to do with kids.
