This burlap decor sign is a great way to create some inexpensive decorations for your home with a personal touch! Here’s how you can make a burlap decor sign with paint and stickers.
I recently posted a DIY Craft Tutorial on how to create these great burlap home decor signs. This time the method that I tried was painting over stickers and removing the stickers to reveal the words! I’ve seen these a lot on Pinterest, but haven’t tried it yet. This burlap decor sign is a great way to create some inexpensive decorations for your home with a personal touch!
Supplies for this burlap decor sign:
- 1 burlap board or canvas (or make your own by attaching burlap to cardboard or shoe box top)
- Acrylic paint
- Paint brush
Step 1. Figure out what you want to say
I chose “home is wherever i’m with you.” I’ve really been loving this saying lately, I blame Pinterest.
Step 2. Start Sticking
Start applying your stickers, be sure you space things out correctly and use create level guide lines to lay the stickers. to make sure mine was right, I just kept a ruler lined up at the top of the board and moved it along as I laid down the stickers. after I finished, I pressed the stickers down extra hard to make sure everything was stuck down and not lifting.
Step 3. Paint
Paint the board, I left a rough border around the outside, but you don’t have to. I had to fill up the paint brush pretty frequently because the burlap really soaks up the paint.
Step 4. Paint edges (optional)
This part is totally optional. I decided to add the black paint to the edges because I felt like it need a more definitive border (especially if its going to be hanging on one of my white walls). Also I added a little extra around the corners to make it a little more rustic and aged.
Step 5. Dry and remove stickers
After letting it dry for a day, carefully remove the stickers. This part was kind of tough for me, but I think it could have been the burlap. The stickers got pretty “stuck” to the rough burlap, I think it may have been different if I working with normal canvas.
