{burlap framed decor}

I actually first made these framed burlap decorations three years ago--one of my very first posts!  (You can find the original post HERE.) I still love them, but this year I decided it was time for a little update. I am totally in love with how it turned out--I'm obsessed with ticking and burlap, so I'm always excited when I use both at the same time!

If you're looking for an easy and inexpensive way to add fall decor (or ANY holiday--just change the word and color!) to your home, look no farther.  It's totally customizable, as you use different fabrics, lettering, and  colors.  These make darling gifts, too!  


-foam stamps or stencil
-craft paint
-coordinating fabric
-small safety pins


1.  Cut your burlap to size. I used the one I already had, which was sized to fit an 8x10 frame.

2.  Using your foam stamps (I used Making Memories foam stamps, Philadelphia style.  If you cut your own stencils on your Silhouette, it's also the Greer font.) or stencils and craft paint, add text to center of burlap.  Let dry completely.

3.  Take the glass out of your frame.  I used an 11x14 frame, so you could see plenty of fabric around the edges of the burlap.  Lay out your coordinating fabric, and trace around the picture back, leaving about an inch around the edges.  Once it's cut out, you can place it inside your picture frame, and secure it with the picture back.  You can pull the extra edges a little bit, to ensure that it's a tight fit, and that the fabric is nice and smooth.

4.  Once the fabric is secure, all you have to do is use your safety pins to pin your piece of burlap in the center.  I used small scrapbooking safety pins, oil-rubbed bronze in color.

Ta-da!  A darling piece of burlap decor!  This is seriously the easiest project ever, and you will love it!

Beautiful! I love the simplicity. Do you mind me asking where you get your picture frames? I'm having a hard time finding decent frames that don't cost an arm and a leg! You always use such nice looking frames in your crafts. Love, love, love, your blog!

I got that frame at Michael's a few years ago--it's been one of my favorites. I would also try Hobby Lobby--both of these stores offer 40% off coupons, which is when I always buy.

I also have had luck at thrift stores--Salvation Army, Goodwill, Habitat, and I just re-paint them.

Thanks for reading!

I was just getting ready to make some burlap signs....however I read on another blog that you can iron burlap to freezer paper and cut to letter size and put into your printer and print anything on it from your computer....sounds interesting, gonna see if it works!
