I'm sorta in love with burlap right now. I search the blog world for fun and exciting things to do with it. I made this cute Halloween Banner by cutting triangles of burlap and tracing letters onto it. I used a black marker and then filled it in with paint. I sewed the pieces onto the jute and then added the ribbon in between to add some flavor. The ribbon on top of each triangle is fused on as well as the ric rac on the sides.
Printing on Burlap
I was curious about printing on burlap but worried about it fraying and getting stuck in the printer so I came up with a great idea (well at least I think it is). I had some clear contact paper that I stuck to the burlap. I cut it to the desired size and fed it through the printer successfully. The adhesive on the contact paper kept the fabric from fraying.
I left the contact paper on when cutting and applying to ribbon.
I can't wait to create more things with burlap. I will keep you updated!!
