Introduction: 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.
Step 1: Items Needed for This Project
Items needed for this project:
I started with a 12" x 12" piece of burlap.
Contact paper with the cut out design.
Step 2: Cut Out Desired Design
I used my Silhouette SD to cute out this flip flop design. Weed out the parts where you want the paint to be applied.
Step 3: Add Transfer Tape
I am not the neatest person in the world. I added the clear transfer tape on top of the design.
Step 4: Apply Design to Burlap
After doing so, I then removed the backing from the contact paper and placed the design on the burlap.
Step 5: Paint
I used a scruffy paint brush and painted metallic purple on to the burlap.
Step 6: Paint Polka Dots
I used a smaller flat brush to paint in the green circles and the band on the flip flops.
Step 7: Another Painting
I did this painting earlier to coordinate with the flip flips.
Step 8: Coordinating Paintings
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!
