We have been smitten with burlap canvases for a while. I love the texture and rustic quality. I really wanted to make some fall art with with mixed elements that wasn’t fussy or over done. The acorns are cut from fabric and were applied with Mod Podge. The stitching was done with yarn and it was super easy to stitch through the canvas.

Using a sharpie (I like to use one that matches my yarn color), write the word FALL. Using Yarn, embroidery the letters.

Smooth the fabric with your fingers.
Top-coat the fabric with a thick layer of Mod Podge.
