Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and a Happy Black Friday with lots of good finds. I am happy to report, I did not step foot in a store today (well my husband did...) and instead I made lots of little crafty projects. ☻ Here is a fun and simple one that I really am loving...
Around Halloween, I picked up some burlap to make some Halloween crafts, and lo and behold, I never got around to it. So today I had a great idea to make ornaments out of it. Here is a tutorial so you can make some too if you like. And the best part-- no sewing- ☻ super easy!
Burlap Word Ornaments:
foam rubber stamps with letters
Christmas fabric scraps
stich witchery, Wonder Under, or other fusible webbing product
Decide what words you would like. Simply paint the stamp with the sponge brush and stamp on the burlap. Don't get too much paint on the stamp. ☻
Next, to get the frayed edge on the burlap, just pull some of the threads/twines out. Very easy. When you cut out your word, leave lots of extra on the sides for this. You don't even have to cut it out straight, because when you pull the threads/twines, it will straighten up. Trim off the sides if needed.
Next, you are going to cut a piece of fabric to match the size, and some stitch witchery (like Wonder Under but on a roll-used to hem skirts,etc. without sewing) and cut a piece of twine.
Next you just layer it all together and iron. The important thing here is to put a layer of your fusible webbing, then your twine, the another layer of webbing. Otherwise, the twine will not stay put, but will come out.
Iron it all together. Make sure the twine is in nice and tight.
I am making lots of these-I think they are so cute! - they would make really cute neighbor gifts--if you are my neighbor and are reading this....oops...maybe you'll get one. ☻
