Burlap Canvas Frames

I had some leftover burlap from a project I had done recently and decided to create something for my pantry door using canvas'.  We recently went to Disneyworld and this was a great way to display some of the pictures.  If your pantry door is like ours, it is opened about 100 times a day, so having these memories on the door is just another way to relive our experience.

Here is what you will need:

  • Burlap - any color combination
  • Canvas
  • Staple Gun
  • Acrylic Paint - I used DecoArt Metallics "Rich Espresso"
  • Paint Brush
  • Masking Tape or any craft tape
  • Binder Clip
  • Spray Paint
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Embellishments
  • 3M Command Picture Hanging Velcro Strips

I started by stapling my burlap onto each canvas frame.  These canvas' came 3 to a pack at Michael's.  I used a 50% off coupon so I got them CHEAP!

The next step was using masking tape to tape off lines where I wanted the design to be.  The exposed areas of the burlap is what will be painted.

After painted...

While the paint dried on the canvas', I took my silver binder clips (you can get these at any office supply store) outside to spray paint them.

After the paint dried to the frames, I just added the embellishments I had.  Unfortunately, it is hard to take pictures of me making the burlap flowers.  But you simply just cut a very long 3" - 4" strips of burlap and knot one end and start going around the knot by twisting and hot gluing every so is a tutorial from Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous, she shows you exactly what to do...Thanks Linda!

After the flowers were made, simply hot glue them to the canvas in the style you want.  I always find it easier to lay things out first before committing to it with hot glue.  I then took scrapbook embellishments by Tim Holtz and used them on all of the canvas' for a themed look.  I love keys, especially if they say something and these talk about, dreams, home, family.....don't always assume that you can't use scrapbook accessories, there not just for paper!!

When the binder clips dried I adhered them with hot glue as well.

Closer looks.........don't you love the key holes!!

To finish off the door, I used some chocolate vinyl and my cricut machine and cut out the word Pantry..I think this finished off the door perfectly!

As the weeks go by, I can simply change out the pictures when I want.  This is a super easy project and there are so many colors of burlap now that this will be a fun, easy, inexpensive project to make.

Thanks for stopping by!!   Have a great week!!
