Over the summer I wanted to make some crafts as welcome back gifts for my sons' teachers. I had seen some cute signs made with burlap so I decided to give it a try. I ended up loving the final product and if I can find a few minutes in the next few days, I plan to make one for myself.
After stitching I cut two triangular pieces off of the end, making the tip of the pencil. Then I painted it with acrylic paints I bought at Wal-Mart. (I was really glad I chose the yellow burlap, it would have taken a lot of yellow paint to make it look like a pencil!)
What do you think?
