I fell head over heels in love with Emily from 52 Mantels and her Valentine Mantel. I saw it and instantly knew it was JUST.MY.STYLE! This painted burlap canvas was inspired by Emily – Thanks girl! This project couldn’t be much easier and of course it is quite affordable. Here is what you need to make one:
- Vinyl Cutter – I used my cricut
- Vinyl in any color
- A canvas
- Painters tape (optional)
- Staple gun
- Spray paint
I cut a piece of vinyl to be the same size as the canvas I had purchased. I put it into my cricut and cut out the word ‘love’ (using a heart instead of an ‘O’). Then I moved the blade down to the bottom corner and cut out a small little heart. Then I took my canvas and covered it in burlap using the same method as I use to reupholster chair cushions. After the canvas was covered I peeled off the backing to the vinyl and applied it over the canvas. (Don’t mind my chipping nail polish or spray painted finger!) Then to protect the sides of the canvas/burlap I used painters tape along the edges. Remember that little heart I cut out? I used it inside the big heart to make a heart in a heart. I also used a box for spray painting so the mess and spray is contained (saw it on pinterest and it works!!) Then I sprayed away. After the paint dried, I removed the vinyl to reveal the finished project! I am so in love – no pun intended! Enjoy!
