 Supplies for Burlap Covered Letter…


Paper Mache’ Letter 

Burlap Fabric 

Wooden Rectangular Base 

Craft Acrylic Paint {I used Folk Art paint in Linen }

Sponge Brush

Dark Colored Marker or Pencil


Hot Glue Gun

Glue sticks

Spray Adhesive {I used Elmer’s Spray Adhesive}

Burlap Covered Letters

First, gather all your supplies. Next, place your paper mache’ letter on the burlap and trace around the letter with the pen or pencil…

Cut out the burlap letter {HINT:Cut to the inside of your tracing line to prevent the ink from showing!}. Paint the  wooden base and paper mache’ letter on all sides with the linen colored  paint and allow to dry.

 Spray the paper mache’ letter with spray adhesive and apply the burlap cut out letter…

Next, apply a light coat of the linen colored paint all over the burlap . You will need to push the sponge brush down into the texture of the burlap. We allowed the paint to dry and then touched up a few areas that we missed!

Of course, the burlap letter looks fabulous without the paint as well. Depending on where you will use the finished letter will determine if you might like to skip the painting step! The final step is to simply glue the burlap letter to the wooden base using your hot glue gun…

  1. Love it! I am a sucker for anything Burlap. :) I always try to keep some around, so I may have to give this a shot! Thanks!


  2. I liked seeing how you chose to do it. I think it would be fun to have a variety of different letter effects going in one room too. Thanks for the idea of the paint on top. I wouldn’t have thought of that. It turned out really well. Typography always adds to the look of a space in a positive way, as far as I’m concerned anyway. Thanks for the how-to. I hope you’ll stop over and visit me at Quirky Vistas!
