Anyone who has read any bits or pieces of my blog probably already knows that I love my burlap and I love my number stencils. It might be hard to believe but I never quite go around to making a set of numbered burlap coasters until now.
These are so easy to make. Cut your burlap into squares that are 5 x 5 inches square.
Take two of your squares and and place them on top of each other and run a stitch about 1/2 inch inside all four edges so that they are sewn together.
Fringe your edges by pulling the burlap threads around all 4 sides. Use scissors to trim all edges so that the fringe looks about the same length on all sides.
Burlap is messy! Be forewarned.
Now you are ready to stencil.
I used black craft paint and stenciled numbers on one side of all four coasters.
These will be fun to use for Thanksgiving this year.
And they make a great hand made gift for the holidays.
I made a set of Burlap Placemats with numbers on them about this time last year. They are easy to make as well.
Click here for a blast from the past and a link to an easy How-To for my Burlap Numbered Placemats. The coasters and the placemats are basically made the same way. And before anyone asks….Here are my two favorite online sources for stencils.
I am linking this post to the Countdown to Thanksgiving Party over at Domestically Speaking. Lot’s of other great ideas over there!
And I am adding to Make It For Monday over at Cottage Instincts. Come by for a visit.
And I have added this post to Transformation Thursday over at The Shabby Chic Cottage and Thrifty Thursday over at Tales from Bloggeritaville. Lots and lots of fun projects at these parties too!
