Fall Framed Burlap

Fall Framed Burlap

Yesterday, being the first of November, I found myself wanting to update my mantle.  I had a couple pumpkins cut from patterned scrapbook paper matted in a frame.  Cute, but after a month or so up there I was ready for something new.  I’ve been on a burlap kick, it is the perfect color and texture for fall and so versatile.  I decided to use burlap in the same frame and create something geared toward Thanksgiving, a fall burlap creation. 

I used a couple of Martha Stewart paper board stencils, white paint and my Silhouette to dress up the burlap.

I layered a large circle stencil over a chevron stencil and used a foam brush to paint the burlap.  I made sure there was very little paint on the brush so it would not bleed on the burlap.

While this dried I created some text with my Silhouette.(this machine is so versatile, if you do not have one I highly recommend adding it to your birthday or Christmas list).

I cut “give thanks” in burgundy and a set of leaves in orange.  I then added them to the burlap and put it in the frame.  If you do not have a way of die cutting letters you could add pre-cut letters from a craft store or continue with paint or a Sharpie and free hand your fall saying.

This fall burlap was a super easy project and it looks great on my fall mantle.
