First thing I did was look through my stash of old frames. I found this red leather frame with a picture of our now-adopted dog. I wasn't really feeling the red any longer so I spray painted it with two coats of Almond-colored spray paint. I put a sheet of foil in the picture opening to avoid any overspray.
To make the monogram, I just created it on the computer in a large, bold font. I think my font size was somewhere between 250 and 300 -- but it depends on the font you pick and the size of your frame. You don't want anything too dainty because very thin lines may have a hard time showing up on the burlap.
Before printing on burlap, I always iron it onto a piece of freezer paper (shiny side down). I then cut them both to size by measuring against a piece of standard printer paper.
After printing, I just cut my burlap to size and slide it in the frame.
I love the rustic feel of burlap and I adore monograms so this is perfect!
Thanks for stopping by 2IY. If you like what you see we'd love for you to share it with the world with a pin or a "like."
