Burlap Thankful Sign

This weekend I had the opportunity to craft-away the days! I made some Thanksgiving crafts and here is one of them.

Remember my Good Luck Sign? Well, here is one for Thanksgiving.

Paint and age a picture frame whatever color you would like.

Stencil your letters onto burlap.

Punch or cut out a leaf shape to go next to the stenciled word.

Put into a frame and display!


I will gratefully be linking up to these parties this week.

  14. I love it! I have some left over burlap that must be used to make one! The other day I was wondering if how hard it would be to stencil letters on burlap, but you made it look so easy so I guess I'll give it a try! Thanks for sharing, found at Motivate Me Monday.

  19. Kristy, I used my Cricut cutting machine and the "Doodletype" cartridge. If you don't have a Cricut, you could make your own stencil by printing the words on your computer and cutting them out. Good luck!
