Mossy Letter on Burlap in Spray Painted Frame
Click READ MORE for the tutorial...


Supplies:
Old Frame
Stiff cardboard insert OR frame glass
Letter
Spray Paint
Burlap
Adhesive and hot glue
Reindeer Moss

This is a quick and easy project!
Spray paint an old frame your choice of color.
Using either the cardboard OR the glass from the frame,
spray paint it white or tan, due to the open weave of the burlap.
Cut the burlap to fit the glass or cardboard, and using a 
spray adhesive (or glue), stick the burlap to it.
Place the burlap covered glass/cardboard into the frame;
Working with small pieces of moss, glue them to the letter;
Using hot glue on the back of the Letter,
center it on the burlap and press down. 



Happy Wednesday, Y'all!

  14. O.K. I going to admit it here that I'm going to steal, I mean borrow your idea. I love everything about this project, the shape of the frame is awesome and I love the color that you painted it. This will be for sure on my ever-growing list of projects to do. Do you mind sharing what color that your painted the frame?
