Burlap Christmas Wall Art (Swell Noel #39)

Sweet Allison from A Glimpse Inside is here to inspire us with a darling idea to adorn our walls this Christmas season!

Hi everyone!

I’m Allison and I blog over at A Glimpse Inside.


I am super excited to be here today to share my Burlap Christmas Art with you.

Would you like to see how to create your own?
Here ya go!!

How to:
Supplies:
-Wood or Canvas (I already had the wood)
-Burlap
-Acrylic Paint
-Spray Adhesive
-Stencils (I created mine using my Silhouette)

First, cut the burlap the same size or a little smaller than your wood.
Make the edges as straight as possible.
Pull the end pieces to fray the edges to your liking.

Paint the wood or your canvas a background color.
This color will border your burlap when complete.

Then, use spray adhesive or spray mount on the back of your stencil and place on your burlap.
Begin to paint.

Make sure you use the “Pounce” method so paint doesn’t get under your stencil.

All done!

I wanted to add some words to my paintings as well so repeat the same process with the spray mount.
Be sure to save any centers of your letters and spray those as well to place in your stencil!

The reindeer burlap all painted.

To mount to the wood, spray the back of the burlap with spray adhesive.
Place on the wood and smooth out flat.

I also glued some buttons or brads in the corners to make it look like those were holding down the burlap.

I created a Christmas tree one as well.

Hang them on the wall and you have some cute and easy Christmas art!

I hope you guys enjoyed my tutorial!
Feel free to pop on by A Glimpse Inside anytime!!

Thanks for having me Amy!
