Burlap Laundry Sign…How to!
So… I finally got my hands on freezer paper!
I figured I would try to use my freezer paper to print on some burlap… did you know you can print on material with some printers?
I created my “laundry” verbiage in Photoshop elements, but you could use any word processing program. I made it 8 1/2” x 11”, so that it would run through my printer as a standard piece of paper. I went to an online dictionary to find the definition I used.
Iron the burlap.
I had a piece of scrap burlap that worked perfectly for this project. You want your fabric nice and smooth for the printing.
Place your freezer paper on top of your ironed burlap with the shiny side down (touching the burlap). Run a medium, dry iron on top of the freezer paper and it will magically adhere to your burlap.
Cut your burlap/freezer paper into your 8 1/2” x 11” size.
Run your burlap/freezer paper through your printer.
Peel off the freezer paper….
and you have this amazing printed burlap!
To finish off this project, I used the leftovers of the foam board from my Check My Pockets laundry sign to create the backing for my empty black frame.
To adhere the burlap sign I used decorative nails.
I used scraps of burlap, remnants of a sweater I turned into a pillow and the remains of my daughter’s dress turned pillow… and twisted and hot glued them onto felt to create some cute flowers. I glued the flowers onto the foam board and frame with my trusty hot glue gun.
My newest laundry love!
