Easy Burlap Word Art

Apparantly my theme for this week is 'wall art' because I have a ton of tutorials on them lined up.

And I cant' wait to show you my new mantle decor.
Love it!!

But for now I wanted to show a piece I did a while ago when I was redoing little man's room.

His colors were red, blue and brown and he just loves seeing his name around and his r's.

So I came up with an easy version of those alphabet name prints you see a lot.

I got some cardstock letters...

They were already red but more pinkish for me... so I painted them a brighter red.

I wrapped the back of 16x20 picture form I had with burlap.
It's just wrapped and hotglued.

Then I hotglued the letters in lines on the board.
I tried to do random patterns but hubby still comes in and says  that it says 'zap'!
Little man's name is in blue going diagonally down.

I popped it back into a frame I had that I painted a hammered brown.
I'm waiting to find the perfect, chunkier frame to put it in.
I'm not in love with the thin frame it has right now... but it works :)

Here's his name art:

Little man loves finding his 'r'.
This was super easy and fun... you might be seeing a new variation of it coming up soon... keep your eyes peeled.
