So when I was given the opportunity to come up with a project using Elmer's Painters Paint Markers, I knew exactly what I was going to use them on. I've used these markers for a long time now. I use them for all sorts of projects from home decor to personalizing gifts to make them a little more "special."
I've used them on just about every surface except burlap. (duh, don't know why I didn't think of it sooner)
I ran to my Walmart to get all my supplies. Burlap, Elmer's Painter Paint Markers and a frame.
I'm making this sound so organized and quick, but believe me I hemmed and hawed over what project to do! (Note to self: STOP OBSESSING) Ok, so here I am at Walmart and I have to be very "ninja like" because some employees in my store don't like it when I take pictures.
First I decided to make a vase and since I just love to personalize things... yup you guessed it, I'm stenciling a "V" (for VanDeusen) on my burlap. I used a glass pickle jar I washed out and saved. It was so easy and quick. Less mess then using a paint and brush to stencil! I did put a folded paper towel under the burlap so the paint wouldn't go through to my table.
My next project was to make a framed HOME sign for a shelf unit in my living room.
First, I spray painted the frame black to match my other stuff. Next, I took it all apart and covered the back part with the burlap. I stenciled "HOME" with my paint markers. I drew the squiggle under HOME free-hand. Then, I put the frame back together. EASY PEASY!
I really think Elmer's has some great products for all sorts of craft and home projects! You should totally check them out on Facebook, Twitter and their site at Elmers.com
Have you made any projects using burlap or the Painters Paint Markers? I'd love to see them!!
