GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Something that’s always seasonal here in Eastern North Carolina is anything with our initials or monograms on it.
In this week’s Make It Monday, local crafter Kathryn Bulow shows us how to make a quick, easy and affordable layered burlap canvas with our monogram.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- A burlap canvas, which you can find at a local craft store
- A wooden plaque and one with a decorative design
- The letter you need for your monogram
- Your choice of scrapbook paper
When it comes to assembly, you’ll need Mod Podge, ribbon to make a bow, a brush of your choice and a hot glue gun.
This will take about 30 minutes start to finish.
First, trace the wooden plaque on the back of the scrapbook paper and cut it out. Once that looks good, use the Mod Podge on the back of the scrapbook paper. Match it up to the wood and let dry.
Next, hot glue your layers to the burlap. The plaque goes first, then the wooden design, then the monogram.
Make a bow or use one you purchased and attach it with hot glue too.
This craft costs less than $20 and is something you can keep on display, inside or outside, all year.
