Here is a DIY art project you can tackle this upcoming weekend!

Painted Burlap Wall Art DIY Project

Guest post by Ashely from anwjohnston.blogspot.com
Yesterday I crossed off #8: Paint Canvas for babies room.  I’m really excited about this one :) I have been trying to decide what to paint for a long time!

This is what i decided to do:

A nice size canvas
Some burlap
Paint
Paint brush
* I was able to do this project with items we already had. I had Leftover burlap from our Ruffle christmas tree skirt, I found the canvas at goodwill for $5 a long time ago {I cleaned it up so it was like new!}, & we already had the paint in our garage from previous paint projects.

Cut your burlap to the size you want. I wanted it to look jagged & not fill the canvas. So this is what my burlap looked like after i cut it.

Take your burlap & do a basic sketch of what you are going to paint..

Get your paint ready..

Set up your paint station. My paint station is our garage, as you can see, our garage floor is covered with random paint :)

Begin painting your burlap!

Once you have finished & your burlap is dry, secure your burlap to the canvas. To do this, i used twine. Tie a knot at the end of a long piece of twine.

Thread the twine through the back of your canvas & burlap with a yarn needle.

Thread through again to make an “X” pattern to make it quite secure. Do this on all four corners & wherever else you feel is necessary.

 

Last but not least, hang your art! It looks lovely in our babies room over her crib. William & I have put lots of love & hard work into her room. I love the unique touches it has with her art,  her Doily lamp, & many other projects we have worked on. I cant wait to sit in that room with her in my arms, rather than sitting there alone, looking at an empty crib,  like i do now.
