DIY Monogrammed Burlap Framed Art

I love it when a project comes together especially when I wasn’t even looking to make a project.  Are you curious??

Well here’s the story…

A few months back, I was in Kohl’s department store looking for some colorful serving bowls.  As I was wandering the aisles, I spied some monogrammed coasters.  They were on sale (bonus :-) ).  I liked the font.  Square is cool.  And I thought “I don’t need coasters” so I kept looking for colorful bowls.

But those darn coasters kept calling me, so I walked back to look at them again.  Hmm…  They were solid.  Black and creme are always on my like list.  But “I don’t need coasters” so the colorful bowl hunt continued.

And while I found my colorful serving bowls (hooray!), those monogrammed – black and creme – solid – cool font – square – on sale – coasters popped into my cart too, because I had an idea for some framed art!

This project was so simple and quick.  And if I do say so myself, my DIY monogrammed burlap framed art looks terrific!

I only needed four things…  Yep.  Only four things.

  1. monogrammed – black and creme – solid – cool font – square – on sale – coasters
  2. burlap
  3. frame
  4. tape

Now if you weren’t walking through Kohls at the same time I was and happened upon your monogrammed coasters, that’s ok.  You can also create your own font in Word or find some monogram clip art on line.  Print your monogram on heavy card stock and cut to a shape you like.  Cut the burlap a little larger than the cardboard backing in the frame.

I need to interrupt this tutorial and share a little burlap trick.

Have you ever wondered how to cut a straight line on burlap, because it gets all wonky and crooked?  Use this easy trick and you’ll have a straight line to cut every time.  Decide how big you want your burlap piece to be and pull one thread out.  You’ve got an instant – straight – cut line to follow.  Cool, right?!!

Then wrap the burlap around the cardboard and use tape to secure it to the cardboard.  I decided to use three coasters, because of the size of my frame and used double sided tape to stick the coasters to the burlap.  Put the burlap and coasters in the frame and WAALAA!

You’ve got a cool, monogrammed framed art with black and creme – solid – cool font – square – on sale – coasters.  (If you are curious about the white washed flower pot, you can see how I made it here.)

Don’t you just love when a project comes together that you weren’t even looking to make?  Yep.  Me too.  Especially when it includes my favorite monogram!

  1. Love, LOVE, LOOOOVE it! (Yeah, I’m screaming that last ‘love’) And the rectangular shape works great with the monogrammed coasters – I’m so glad they kept calling your name!

  3. Hi Michele,

    This is a cute idea. Easy and simple are the best ones!
    I think it would make a great open house or house warming gift too.
    Have a great weekend.
    I look forward to seeing more of your cute projects at the party next week.
