Burlap and Galvanized Metal Gather Sign

Sharing is caring!

It’s  Burlap  Season. 

Well, technically its Fall but to me that also means burlap.

So, I was thrilled when Maryann asked me to take part if her

Burlap Lovers Series.

Twenty one bloggers will be sharing their best 

DIY Burlap posts and I am honored to be a part of it all. 

Let’s call it Burlapalooza.

You know what I love as much as burlap?

Easy projects!

As in “30-minutes or less” easy projects.

I needed a small sign above my farmhouse sink, 

and after tirelessly searching for one that was the

perfect fit, I finally gave up and decided to make one on my own.

Here is how to make a 

Farmhouse  Style

Burlap and Galvanized  ” Gather”  Sign.

I started with a 6″ wide piece of luan paneling from Lowes.

It is about 36″ long.  You will need to decide how long your board

needs to be, based upon the letters you spell out.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a way to cut it, just ask your

friendly Lowe’s staff to do it for you.

Galvanized Letters from Hobby Lobby

I found these 4″ Galvanized Letters at Hobby Lobby.

They were regularly $2.99 each but I waited until 

they went 40% off. 

I already had the burlap. 

Cutting Burlap Fabric to Fit Board

I started out by cutting the burlap about 1.5″ larger all around

than the board.  I didn’t even measure. I just rough cut it.

Using a stapler, I simply folded the burlap around to the back of the

wood and stapled it on.

I treated the corners like you would a package

then trimmed the excess fabric a bit.

If the unfinished backside bothers you, you can cut some felt

or leftover fabric and glue it on.

But, this is a 30-min project remember?  🙂

I went ahead and added a sawtooth hanger on each side.

Much easier to add before I attached the lettering.

Painters tape was used to create a straight line guide.

Then, I simply spaced the letters where I needed them, 

and hot glued them in place.

I decided last minute to add some small cording to the outer edge.

I had some assorted ribbons, but they were a bit too wide.

This leftover cording was perfect!

I may replace this later with some galvanized upholstery tacks. 

That’s it!

Not including my trip to Lowes to get the board –

(I was already there anyway so it wasn’t a special trip)

I had this project completed start to finish in about 30 minutes.
