This week I’m working on my summer mantel. It’s slowly coming together. I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those mantel people who takes a week to get it just so. Every time I walk by I move something, add something, remove something… I just can’t keep my hands off.
In planning what I wanted for my summer mantel this year, I knew I wanted to include some red, white and blue… it is the summer Olympics this year after all. So what better then a burlap sign cheering on Team USA.
To make this sign I cut out “USA” in the freezer paper.
Then I ironed the freezer paper, with the shiny side down, onto a piece of burlap.
I put my iron on a cotton setting with no steam. Make sure when you are attaching freezer paper to fabric, especially something detailed like this, that you press well around the cut-out areas. You don’t want the paint to seep under.
Then with acrylic craft paint and a stencil brush I pounced the paint on.
I let it dry about 20 minutes before peeling off the freezer paper to reveal my patriotic sign.
Do you guys love watching the summer Olympics in your house too?
Go Team USA!!!
So what have you been painting?
