I am so excited to share this tutorial with you all today! It is super duper easy to make and doesn't take much time at all. They would look great on your tree or gifted for someone this year. You can also use them to adorn your gifts! There's also a DecoArt Christmas Giveaway after the tutorial too! Who's excited?! I just love DecoArt...and I used their products to make these ornaments (& loads of other projects too).
What You Need:
Burlap (you won't need a lot...but of course I got a half yard to make lots of other projects too), glue gun, embroidery frame (or hoop) - your call, DecoArt Kaleidoscope Stencil, DecoArt Inspiration Stencil, DecoArt Acrylic Paint (in your color choice) - I used Indian Turquoise & Black, & a dauber brush
What to do:
Cut a square of burlap that is larger than your frame.
Place your burlap over a scrap piece of paper. The paint may go through the burlap.
Place your stencil in the middle of the burlap. Dip your dauber in the paint and dab off any excess paint on the side. Dab over your stencil making sure all spaces are filled with paint. Remove your stencil and admire.
Repeat with any other stencils you would like!
Let your paint dry.
I found a bottle cap that fit perfectly inside my frame (not necessary, but makes things a whole lot easier). Or you can use a mini embroidery hoop. I got these two frames at Walmart for under $2.
Place your burlap over the cap so that your image is centered. Place hot glue all around the inside of the frame. Place it over the burlap on the cap and press down to adhere. Voila! Now just trim the edges.
Obviously repeat with any other pieces of burlap you stenciled.
Hang 'em on the tree and you're done!
