Burlap Cuties!

January 28, 2015

I love any DIY that is easy peasy and only requires a couple of materials.  I had these 6 inch squares sitting in my back shelf forever and was having the hardest time trying to come up what to do with them.  I found them on clearance at Michaels for an affordable price.  I am sure no more than 5 buckaroos.  I was going through that “I love me some burlap” phase so I had to snatch them up.  Came across this cute burlap creation on Pinterest by Krystal’s Kitsch and really liked her method.  Thought I would try it on my burlap cuties.

First thing I needed was a sophisticated & fancy stencil. Hmmm, where to look?  Shazam!  I found one in my kid’s crayon box stash!  There was a handful of cardboard stencils and this one had a really neat pattern.  Heck, who would know that it came from one of those kiddies craft kits…hee, hee!  I grabbed my favorite Sharpie, scotch tape & kiddie stencil and went to work.  Viola, finished product.  Hmmmm…..it needed one more thing.  I had some upholstery nails just hanging around.  You know don’t we all?!?  They actually came in a nail kit of The Hubs so I thought I would swipe them plus he wouldn’t be using them anyway.  Hung those babies on the wall with my letter C and I was good to go.
