Burlap Scrapbook Canvases for the Wall with a Podgeable Tile Banner

Thankful Canvas Mod Podge Podgeables scrabble tile Have you seen the new burlap canvases?  We are loving them and they are great for making mixed media collages to hang on the wall. This one features my favorite fall picture of my sister’s family.  Too cute!  The banner across the top was mad with our square podgeable shapes. The set that has the most amount of squares is available at Walmart in the DIY Jewelry Section.

Burlap Mod Podge podgeables scrapbooking

Begin with the small square Podgeable shape. Trim fall scrapbook paper to fit the top of the Podgeable shapes. (You can use paper punches too)

Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the tops of the Podgeable shapes and to the back of the papers. Position the papers on the Podgeables. Smooth with your fingers. Apply a top-coat of Mod Podge. Allow to dry 2 hours.

Attach a letter stickers to the center of the Podgeable shapes. Cover the Podgeable shapes with Dimensional Magic. Begin around the outer edge and fill until the entire Podgeable is covered. Dry for 24 hours in an undisturbed and non-drafty place.

Burlap scrapbooking embellishments with Mod Podge

Tie yarn through the holes on the Podgeable shapes. Using the same yarn, sew a row of straight stitches through the canvas. This will be the “rope” that holds up the “thankful banner”. Hot glue the Podgeables across the stitched line.

Attach the photo to the canvas by using a drop of hot glue in each corner. Add silk flowers and buttons to the design. Tie a piece of leather lacing around the outer edge of the canvas.

Tip: While the Dimensional Magic is drying don’t move the pendant around or you might get air bubbles. If you do get an air bubble, use a sewing pin to pop it.
