Instructions

  1. Tape the stencil on all sides to the burlap with painters tape. 
  2. Place a small amount of paint onto a pallet. Dip the paintbrush in the paint then swirl it around on a clean pallet space. This distributes the paint on all the bristles. 
  3. Dab the end of the paint on clean paper towel to remove excess paint. 
  4. Now you’re ready to fill in the letter stencil with paint using a dabbing motion. Leave the paint to dry and add a second coat if needed to darken. 
  5. Remove the stencil when dry and save for later projects. 
  6. Center the ornament over the initial piece. Trace around the ornament onto the burlap with chalk. 
  7. Cut inside the chalk line with scissors. 
  8. Remove the wire hanger and cap from the ornament.
  9. Roll up the burlap circle and put inside the ornament. Use a pencil to fluff out the circle and position it just right. 10. Replace the cap, thread the ribbon through the hook and tie off. Ready to hang or give as a gift!
