burlap halloween diy art decorations We are loving the new burlap canvases that are popping up at the craft stores. They are great for altering.  If you can’t find a burlap canvas just stretch and staple burlap around a wood frame or old canvas like we did on this project.

What you need:
Hot Glue
Scrapbook paper
Mod Podge ® Gloss, 8 oz.
1 – Alphabet – Letter B
2 – Alphabet – Letter O
FolkArt ® Metallics – Sequin Black, 2 oz.
FolkArt ® Extreme Glitter™ – Gold, 5 oz.
Eyelash yarn
Wood pumpkins
FolkArt ® Acrylic Colors – Pumpkin, 2 oz.
FolkArt ® Extreme Glitter™ – Orange, 5 oz.

1. Wrap the burlap around a canvas and hot glue to secure. Trim the paper to fit the canvas, apply a coat of Mod Podge Gloss to the back of the paper, position the paper on the canvas, smooth with your fingers to remove any air bubbles. Allow to dry.

2. Paint the wood letters and pumpkins with Metallic Black paint. Allow to dry. Highlight with gold Extreme Glitter. Cut the letter shapes from burlap and glue to the top of the letters with Mod Podge. Hot glue eyelash ribbon around the outer edge of the letters.

3. Add orange highlights to the pumpkin shapes with FolkArt Pumpkin paint. Add a layer of Extreme Glitter Orange to the highlighted areas. Hot glue scraps of burlap, rhinestones and yarn to the pumpkins.

4. Assemble the piece by hot gluing the letters, pumpkins and birds to the canvas.
