Hi I am Tammy from One More Time Events and today I would love to share with you all how I took a pre-made burlap runner and some burlap leaves to create a simple Fall Wall Art piece.
I am so happy to take part of this Burlap Lovers Series here at Domestically Speaking with Maryann and 21 other bloggers here sharing some great ideas using burlap. This series actually was perfect timing since most of my daughters wedding was done using burlap so there are lots of pieces that can be re-used and incorporate in my Fall decorating.
12X12 Magnetic Board (I had this magnetic board, but you could use canvas)
Premade Burlap Runner or you could create your own like Maryann did here
Package of Burlap Leaves
Wired burlap ribbon
White Paint Pen
Hot Glue Gun
Cut the runner to the size of the magnetic and or canvas board, leaving enough to wrap around to the back side…approx 1 inch all around.
pull all the corners in one at a time and hot glue into place,
Hot glue the rest of the burlap edges pulling each side up and around the edges, much like wrapping a present, glue those into place. Tip: be sure to pull taunt as you go so the burlap lays flat.
Decorating the Front:
I ended up using 7 burlap leaves, but you can use how many you want, Arrange your burlap leaves into a wreath like circle pattern. Because these burlap leaves have a wire in the middle it made it easy to transform them by simply bending the leaves up in random places of the leaf to add deminsion to the Wall art.
hot glue them in place by gluing on the the flat parts of the leaf.
I actually left the wire showing mainly because it was brown and looked like vines but instead of leaving them straight I curled them. To curl them it’s pretty simple wrap the wire around a wooden skewer and pull it out.
To make the banner cut a piece of burlap wired ribbon to the size desired and write your message with a white paint pen
Here I wrote “Welcome” mainly becuase I want to be able to use it in the guest room when I am done using it as part of the Fall decorations. Leaves don’t just have to be used for Fall …in my book they can be used year around. What do you think? Should burlap leaves be only used for Fall or do you think they can be used all year around?
With the same white paint pen I added dashes around the edge of the burlap ribbon to look like stitches.
Hot glued the welcome banner in place
That’s it… simple, fast and easy. Don’t you just love how you can take a few pieces and create a fast and easy project for the season or every day home decor? Like I said, I will be using this piece in our guest bedroom which I am currently redoing and this burlap wall art will go perfectly in there,
Maryann thank you so much for having me ….it was a lot of fun!
