Each participant could choose to use stencils that said either "Give Thanks" or "Blessed" and could personalize their panel with paint and mini-banners.
Supplies needed:We used 8x8 burlap panels from Hobby Lobby, 6 inches of twine, scrapbook paper triangles, acrylic paint, foam brushes and pre-cut stencils that said Give Thanks or Blessed.
- Position stencil on your panel as desired and hold firmly while dabbing paint on it with color(s) of your choice.
- While waiting for paint to dry, create a mini banner by attaching scrapbook paper triangles to twine with hot glue.
- Once paint is dry, hot glue twine banner to panel.
The great thing about this craft is that you can paint anything on the burlap, with or without a stencil. You can also get creative with the banner and add several strands, or embellish your burlap canvas in an entirely different way... with felt flowers or leaves, or ribbons/rafia, acorns, buttons, whatever! And even though we created these burlap panels with Thanksgiving in mind, you could make a rustic treasure to enjoy for any season or all year long.
