If you love mixing rustic with modern, this stenciled burlap DIY rustic decor is definitely for you. I took a rustic texture like burlap and mixed it in with a modern graphic stencil. It’s perfect for displaying pictures, mementos and more! I am using mine to display some vintage postcards. It is super easy to change out the art as your mood or seasons change.
- 12 x 12 inch Canvas Corp burlap fabricpage™
- 12 x 12 inch wood panel
- Stencils (shown are FolkArt square revival and moroccan tile)
- Craft paint in your choice of colors (shown are Charcoal Grey and Soft Blue)
- Stencil brush
- Paint brush
- Hot glue
- Krylon spray adhesive
Paint the wood panels in the color of your choice. I used a dark Charcoal Grey on mine. I only used one coat on these as I still wanted them to be a bit rustic when dry. Allow these to dry completely. In the meantime, stencil your burlap with the pattern of your choice. The stencil is not large enough to cover the entire area so start in one corner as shown. I used soft blue as the paint color on the burlap.
Once you have painted the first area, move your stencil, align with the existing painted area, and continue to stencil. Continue this process until the entire piece of burlap is covered with your pattern. I did a light coat with the paint so that the rustic feel is still present. Allow this to dry completely as well.
Once all of your pieces have completely dried, you can take them outside. Spray the back of the burlap with spray adhesive and lay it right on your wood panel. Press well to adhere.
Now you are ready to add a clothespin to each stenciled burlap DIY wall decor piece. First position without gluing to get an idea of placement.
For me, these stenciled burlap DIY rustic decor pieces are perfect. They fit in great with the new rustic gallery wall that I created in my family room. I will continue to add to this wall with rustic and slightly more modern finds over time. Plus with my new stenciled burlap DIY rustic decor, I can change out the display on two of my pieces in just a few seconds.
