Ok, I love tutorials - the kind with more pictures than words. I guess I am a visual learner? Yup. So here you go! Just had to share. It isn't rocket science but hopefully it will inspire.
Supplies - burlap, dot painting brushes, pins, paint, scissors, and wrapping paper or brown kraft paper
Cut a shape out of wrapping paper. I have a problem with straight lines so my star is a bit wonky. That is ok, I am too.
Using template, cut two of the burlap shapes. I pin burlap together and cut. Then pin burlap shapes onto a plastic surface (so paint won't bleed through).
Let dry - duh?
And the rest I forgot pictures! Hot glue two sides together. Leave a small gap in the middle to insert "stuffing. I use Publix sacks. Not to much. Just enough to hold shape. Glue shut.Glue on bow etc. etc.
Ta-da! Done! I used a cheap plastic hanger hot glued to the back. Holds the star shape perfect. And it is free! _ yippppeeeeeee
Total cost - 3.25 and 30 minutes time.
