Burlap Letters

I fell in love with these burlap letters the first time I came across them on The Virginia House.
You will need:
-Letters of your choice. The ones I used have a tough cardboard consistency and were purchased from Hobby Lobby. I loved how they were more masculine than many letters you see.
-Mod Podge or Elmer's Glue
-Canvas or burlap fabric
-Paint & roller brush or sponge brush.
-Good fabric scissors

First outline your letters with a marker onto the fabric and cut inside the marked line somewhat so that the burlap doesn't hang over the letters' edges.

Then mod podge or glue the fabric onto your letters.

The next part just adds an extra touch. These letters look great covered in burlap, but to give them a little something else, lightly paint over the burlap with a cream or ivory color.

Such a quick and easy project for something different to add to letters!

My mom came in for the weekend and we had a blast together! We even managed to add some color to the front porch, I'll update you soon...plus, the nursery is coming together, carpet was installed on Monday so I've been nesting away! I cannot wait to show you, Steven and I love his room so much we spent all afternoon with the doggies in there!


  1. Love the letters but love your tanned feet and pink toes even more!

  2. So cute! I love the shelf they're on with the chalkboard where the picture frames would be :)
