How to print on burlap – redneck style.

How to print on Burlap

So I wanted to print something out on burlap. I’d seen a few examples of gorgeous burlap printing artistry, and I figured I could give it a go.

I found a lot of tutorials.

Like this one (love this blog!)

And this one

The one that inspired my burlap search here

And they are all good tutorials, but they also all involved me going to the store and purchasing something. So I thought I’d try to make do with what I had, and came up with this: printing on burlap red neck style.

Materials Needed: 

burlap cut just smaller than 8 1/2 x 11

card-stock

tape

printer

Instructions:

1. Make your design. If you want to use mine your more than welcome, it’ll be at the end of the post.

2. Using plain old present wrapping tape, tape the burlap to your card stock

3. Print it out

4. Holding your fabric, pull tape off away from the burlap to avoid fraying

There is sunshine in my soul

I took my pretty printed burlap and embroidered a sun and some flowers. It’s already on display in my house, oh and p.s. Little Lion loves it! She keeps pointing at it and saying wee wee wee wee wee… she really likes saying wee wee lately, lol. I interpret wee wee as pretty, such a girl!

Oh, I almost forgot! Here’s the printable:
