There are few things that scream “Autumn” quite so much as burlap! I’m here to show you a quick way to make your own printed burlap art Autumn decoration. I used one of my favorite quotes from Anne of Green Gables but you can always use this technique to print anything you want on burlap. We’d love to see what you come up with on the Consumer Crafts Facebook page!
- Natural Burlap Fabric Sheet
- Clean Cut Silhouette Interfacing
- 8.5 x 11 Unfinished Wood Shadowbox
- Rusted Tin Maple Leaves
- DecoArt Crafter’s Acrylic Paint in Cinnamon Brown
- Burlap Art Autumn Decoration Free Printable < Click to print
- Small Decorative Gourd
Step One. Iron an 8.5 x 11″ piece of the Silhouette Clean Cut Interfacing to the burlap and cut to size.
Step Two. Dilute the brown paint with water and apply to wood frame. Quickly wipe away the majority of the paint with a clean cloth so that you’re left with just the stain. You may notice that I decided to use the back side of the frame but feel free to use the other side if you prefer. Just a matter of what you like!
Step Three. Print the burlap art Autumn decoration printable onto the reinforced burlap. The interfacing will stabilize it enough that the printer should take it just like paper.
Step Four. Peel off the interfacing paper backing. Iron it on the wood frame on high. Don’t worry if you can’t get the iron into the corners, as long as the center is secure the burlap will stay in place.
Hope you enjoyed this Autumn decoration tutorial and have a fabulous October!
