Last week, it was so warm here in the South, so I felt I needed to bring on the Spring. So I started with my mantel. I had these flower boxes that screamed fall and I had planned to change out the flowers with each season, but I never got around to doing it. Then it hit me, the boxes were way too dreary and a little beat up, so it was either spray paint them or Mod Podge them with Burlap, glorious Burlap! Well the Burlap won of course. Everything looks fabulous with Burlap!!
- Burlap fabric
- Rotary cutter
- Decoupage Mod Podge
- Sponge applicator
Cut your burlap with a rotary cutter to match your boxes dimensions.Paint on the Mod Podge pretty thick with a sponge applicator. Lay the fabric on the box, press and smooth to cover. Trim the frays and strings. Do not pull them, they will run and you will have an unfilled area.
I did not coat the outside of the fabric with Mod Podge, because I like the look of the fabric with out sheen or shine. I added some faux greenery, (the boxes were from Pier One and already had styro-foam glued inside, you could always just hot glue some floral foam inside if needed). So simple and a super easy project!
