Stenciling burlap is a great way to add a personal touch to your craft projects. Now that spring is right around the corner, I wanted to share a fun and easy project to help brighten up your dining room table. Here is my tutorial on how to make spring table centerpieces with stenciled burlap.
Spring table centerpieces supplies:
- 3 Metal Planters
- Martha Stewart Crafts Flourish Stencil
- Martha Stewart Crafts Stencil Brush Set
- Licorice FolkArt Acrylic Paint
- David Tutera Natural Burlap
- Dual Temp Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Hydrangea Long Stems
- Dritz Fray Check
Step One: Measure and cut the David Tutera Natural Burlap in three 6 x 6 inch pieces.
Step Two: Apply Dritz Fray Check on all four sides of each piece of burlap and allow it to dry for approximately 15 minutes.
Step Three: Once the Dritz Fray Check is dry, center the Martha Stewart Crafts Flourish Stencil onto a burlap square. Make sure to protect your surface. Generously apply Licorice FolkArt Acrylic Paint onto the tip of the Martha Stewart Crafts Stencil Brush and dab off any excess paint. Apply the paint onto the stencil in an up and down motion. Remove the stencil and wash it thoroughly. Make sure to rinse and clean the stencil in between stenciling each piece. Repeat this step for the other two burlap squares.
Step Four: Once your burlap pieces are stenciled and dry (approximately 15 minute dry time), hot glue them onto your metal planters.
Step Five: Lastly, arrange four Blue Grandiose Hydrangeas in each of your metal planters.
In five easy steps, you will have a beautiful set of personalized spring table centerpieces. I have a very long table, so three metal planters were perfect for my dining room. Of course, you can only make one or give the other table centerpieces away as a gift! I hope you try it out!
