These photo's were taken with my phone, please forgive the crappy quality. This was a 30 minute project top to bottom.
I was inspired by this:
I found it on Pinterest but it is from the etsy shop HERE.
First I cut my burlap and left a one inch flap in the back
Then I used my stencils and black paint to add my words.
It took about 15 minutes to dry.
Next I stitched around the edges to prevent fraying and to enclose a space for the dowel to go through.
Now just throw in a dowel and add some string.
All done & so easy!
