Summer Sign

Just in case you need reminding, Summer IS HERE!!! I do not need reminding, however, I like to celebrate the start of summer BIG TIME. (I am a teacher and I have been counting down the days until summer since, oh, let's say last September!

Anyhow, in honor of the great yellow blob in the sky and to remind people to never forget summer, I made a burlap sign. Every time I glance at it, I smile to myself and then think of how many days we have left of school (5 in case you were wondering).

Step 1: Cut out burlap to fit in the picture frame and cut out the summer stencil (I used 2" Doodletype Cricut cartridge).

Step 2: Paint it on the burlap. Let dry.

Step 3: Put into picture frame.

Step 4: Stop staring at your sign and get outside and start enjoying summer!!

I'll be linking to these parties this week (and dreaming of summer vacation).


  1. Sweet and cool! I love it, would be so pretty in a cabin, too1

  20. I LOVE burlap and have been itching to do a project with it again and I think this just might be the one! I was wondering though if you left the glass in the frame with the burlap behind it or if you just took the glass out? Could it even work that way? Thanks, excited to be following you now!
