Hi Everyone. I’m still on a mission to stop neglecting fall and creating some fun and easy decorations. I whipped up this easy and inexpensive Thanksgiving burlap canvas art last night in no time flat. Quick and easy projects are definitely my favorite. Especially when they are also cheap!
I used a scrap piece of contact paper to cut out my words. I used the Sail font from Font Squirrel if you are curious. I unpeeled my contact paper and stuck it down on the burlap canvas, making sure to get out as many ripples and bubbles as I could.
I used Martha Stewart satin paint in Adobo and Chesnut Brown. Using 1″ foam tip paint brushes, I just dabbed the paint on. I wouldn’t recommend brushing it, or your stand the risk of having the paint bleed underneath the stencil. Especially since things don’t stick to burlap very well.
I had some thanksgiving scrapbook paper from a couple of years ago that I knew would be perfect for this. I cut 1 1/2″ x 3″ strips of different patterned paper and then folded them in half. I then cut my triangles for the bunting.
I had some jute twine in my craft closet and cut a piece at my desired length.
And that’s it! I even surprised myself at how quickly I was finished with it. I hope that you give a project like this a try. It is so easy and quickly adds a great seasonal touch to your home.
Thanks for stopping by!
