Monogrammed Burlap Canvas and A Hometalk and Michaels Pinterest Party

I always joke that I married my husband because I would not have to change my initials.
I very much liked that big ole "L" that was the beginning of my last name.
I have always (long before the monogram trend began) loved using my initials to personalize my decor. That is why I love this Monogrammed Burlap Canvas project that is part of the Michaels and Hometalk Pinterest Party
Visit Hometalk and search the hashtag #MPinterestParty to see a ton of great projects!

Make It!
  • Use the Distress Ink around the edges of the canvas; simply rub the sides and corners. Begin with the Frayed Burlap, and finish, lightly, with the Black. It is easier to do this now, before you glue on the doilies)
  • Trace the letter onto the scrapbook paper and carefully cut out the paper.

  • Apply a layer of decoupage onto the wood letter. 
  • Place the cut out paper onto the wood letter and smoother to release air bubbles. 
  • Apply a layer of decoupage over the top of the paper; smooth; let dry.

  • Use the Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and rub the edges of the letter. Or, if using paint do the same, being sure to get the corners very well, and perhaps even the entire letter, depending on your level on desired "distress." To distress the entire letter, brush paint all over and then wipe with a damp paper towel; reapply as desired.

  • Color/paint on one large and one small doilie in blue (or desired color); paint/color on black. Color 2 small doilies in black. Let dry. The Distress Paint is super easy - it has a sponge applicator and you can prep it and rub all over with very little mess and a short drying time.
  • Rub Frayed Burlap on blue doilie after it is completely dry.Just press stamp pad down and rub.
  • Place wood monogram on burlap canvas. I placed mine up about 1" and over about 1" from the left, but depending on which letter you are using, you may need to adjust your placement. 
  • Place the doilies in the top right corner (again, depending on your letter placement you may need to adjust the placement of the doilie). 
  • Once happy with the positions, Use the Weldbond to glue into place. Let dry.
