DIY Monogrammed Burlap Canvas {Michaels & Hometalk In-Store Pinterest Event}

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday!
If you have been following me on Facebook, 
you’ve probably seen my posts about the upcoming Michaels & Hometalk
Pinterest Event that is happening this Sunday the 16th!
 If you didn’t see my posts, then let me just say
that I am so excited to representing the Hometalk team at my
local Fort Collins, CO Michaels Store! 
The party is this Sunday, February 16 from 1:00-4:00pm 
and I would love for you to join me in some crafting fun!
Even if you are not in my neck of the woods, you can still party.
There are over 100 bloggers and stores participating in this event.
You can find a complete list of stores HERE.
Today, I’m sharing with you a simple craft project
that I made for the event…a DIY Monogrammed Burlap Canvas.
You know I love almost anything burlap 
and when I saw these canvases at my Michaels…

It was love at first sight! 
I was also super happy to discover they were on sale for 40% off
 plus I had my mobile coupons! 
With such a great deal right before my eyes,
I decided to make His and Her monogrammed canvas for my master bedroom remodel.
That’s the reason why I went with pretty neutral color palate. 

For this project you will need:

-burlap canvas (12×12)
-scrap paper
-strong glue
-felt flower
-wooden plaque 
-wooden letter
-spray adhesive
-paint (optional)
-brush (options)

I started the project by tracing an outline of the plaque on to the back 
of my scrapbook paper. 
Since my paper was a little see-through, 
I decided to paint my wood plaque white for better contrast.
If your paper is a darker color, you can totally skip this step.

While my plaque was drying, I cut out my traced outline with scissors.

 I sprayed my painted plaque with some adhesive
and then applied my scrapbook paper on top.
Make sure to smooth it out with your hands to remove any bubbles.
Once that was dry I applied some strong glue to the back on my plaque
and placed it center of my burlap.
Using the same glue, I attached the “L” on top of the plaque.
For that little special touch, I added a gray felt flower.
And here is the finished project in all its burlap goodness.

Do you think this is something you would like to make?
