Painting on Burlap



Have you ever thought about painting on burlap for your home decor?  I have and that is what this project is all about.  It is a great way to add different textures in to a room and add interest to the room.


Items needed for this project:

I started with a 12" x 12" piece of burlap.
Contact paper with the cut out design.
Transfer tape.
Fabric paint.
Iron.

I used my Silhouette SD to cute out this flip flop design.

I am not the neatest person in the world.  I added the clear transfer tape on top of the design. 

After doing so, I then removed the backing from the contact paper and placed the design on the burlap.

I used a scruffy paint brush and painted metallic purple on to the burlap.

I used a smaller flat brush to paint in the green circles and the band on the flip flops.

I did this painting earlier to coordinate with the flip flips.

They will be cute framed and hung by each other.  Very simple to do.

All the paint to dry.  Follow the manufacturer's directions.  I would say to allow around 24 hours.  The final step is to run a hot iron over the completed painting to set the paint.

It is now time to enjoy your painting!
