A Burlap Project



I had seen this idea on someone’s blog a while back and I can’t for the life of me remember where it was. I have tried searching again for it but couldn’t find it. If someone knows please let me know so I can give them credit. Anyway, I have thought about doing it for some time now. I forgot to take a before picture but I bought a frame similar to the one above. First I stapled the burlap around the backing but then you could see the staples so I had to remove them and I just ironed the burlap around the inside cardboard piece. Then I was going to take some letter stencils I have  but of course I couldn’t find the size I wanted so I got out my calligraphy book and made a letter with a black permanent marker. Any who, it is a dry erase board. I made it for a gift. The “A” is the first initial of their last name but you could put anything on there. Their full name, birth date, favorite numbers, address, whatever strikes your fancy! I hope they will like it!
