Today’s post is all about how to make a personalized burlap sign in less time than it takes to brew a pot of coffee. Really, I’m not kidding. This is the easiest DIY project I’ve ever shared. But it’s seriously one of the cutest. If you saw my post about the vintage inspired gallery walllast week, you might have noticed the burlap sign that said Vintage Nest on the wall. I’m going to show you exactly how I made that as well as a few other burlap signs I came up with–I kind of got carried away!
Start off with an empty frame and simply cut a piece of burlap to size, then staple it on the back of the frame. You can find burlap at just about any craft store in the fabric section. Side note–I use burlap all over the house and for a ton of different projects, so I always have it on hand. It’s just so versatile!
For my signs I used the Heidi Swapp foam letter stamps, which you can find at Michael’s. But you don’t have to buy these exact ones, I’ve seen foam letters like this at most craft stores. I think Wal-Mart even carries something similar. You might even be able to use the foam letters in the kids’ section. I bet that would work perfectly!
Simply lay out the letters to create any words you want.
Brush a little paint on the back of the letter and firmly press it onto the burlap. And that’s it. Done!
Here’s the one I made for our gallery wall. I wanted to create something that was unique to our home and my style, so I went with vintage nest. I love it.
And anther one for the living room….
And of course I had to add some inspiration on our memo board…
And last but not least, a new sign for the bathroom…
So that’s it! No kidding, this is a 5 minute project. Like I said, I kind of got carried away, but I just kept thinking of signs I wanted to make. So easy and so quick, this is the perfect afternoon project. You could do your favorite Bible verse, or a cute sign for the kitchen, or something that is personal to you and your family. Whether it’s in a frame or nailed on an old piece of barnwood, I think these burlap signs are just so darn cute. I also thought this would be a great gift idea with the holidays coming up. I always love handmade gifts the most. Well I hope this gave you some inspiration! Let me know what you think of my little signs, I always love chatting with you! xoxo
