Monogrammed Burlap Clipboard

We are proud to be a part of the DecoArt core blogging team. We were given product and compensation but all craftiness is 100% ours. 

Oh how my daughter loves a monogram! I really think she would put them on everything, from school stuff to clothes. Combine her love for them with a teen wanting to keep everything and display it all, and we came up with a great craft project together. We used some of her favorite colors and a bit of burlap to create a fabulous Monogrammed Burlap Clipboard.

She adores this beautiful blue color by DecoArt called Coastal Waters. I have already seen some of the things she is clipping to the little clothespin….bible versus, pictures of her camp friends, reminders. I love that!

I think the little clothespin glued onto the burlap is the perfect touch.

 Her dad and I are thinking of  leaving little notes of encouragement for her on it. She loves that. Words of affirmation are definitely one of her love languages.

Seriously, this is a great craft to do with tweens and teens. Not too many supplies and easy to paint for a beautiful result. So let’s get started making one, ok?

STEP ONE:

Paint the frame and the little clothespin in the White Birch color and allow to dry. Meanwhile paint the letters and buttons in the Coastal Waters color by Americana. If you have not used the Multi-Surface Satin Paints, well you are missing out. The colors are beautiful and the coverage is amazing.

STEP TWO:

Simply place the burlap canvas inside the frame like you would a photo once the frame is completely dry.

STEP THREE:

Using the hot glue gun, attach the painted letters to the top part of the frame. I centered the letters and used a traditional monogram for a young lady…fist initial, last initial, and middle initial. The last initial is the largest in the middle.

STEP FOUR:

 Attach the wooden buttons to the bottom part of the frame with the glue gun. I chose 3 larger buttons and 2 smaller ones. I love how adding the buttons at the bottom helped to balance the frame out. Sometimes little details like this really make the difference in something looking absolutely finished.

The final step is to attach the clothespin to the burlap canvas. I used the glue gun to do this. Such a great touch!

    I laughed when I read the first sentence of this post. My daughter is sitting on the couch and just found a monogrammed necklace she wants. If she had her way, everything she owns would be monogrammed. She is going off to college in the fall and this will be perfect for her dorm room. Love the turquoise colors with the burlap. Thanks so much!!
