I wanted to stencil on a fleur de lis but I couldn't find a stencil large enough so I just made my own. I just found one on the internet that I liked, printed it out and traced it on cardstock and cut it out with an exacto knife. Then I stenciled it on the burlap. I just used craft paint in burnt umber.
It looked kind of plain so I took some decorative tacks and hammered them in around the edges. It turned out great! So easy and it didn't take long at all!
(Paige decided that it needed a little something extra so she took a pencil and gave it a few good markings in the bottom left corner! I think that was just what it needed! Thanks Paige!)
Next I want to make some of those really cute burlap placemats!!
