Burlap & Buttons Monogram


Hey everyone!  Happy happy happy Friday!  It's been a long week here at the Cole House, and I am beat.  However, I did want to share a button monogram that I made a few days ago.  Remember this?  I couldn't resist.  Here it is!


All you need is a canvas, some burlap (or other material of choice) cut about 3 inches larger than your canvas, a variety pack of coordinating buttons, glue, and a heave-duty stapler.


First, staple the fabric onto the the back of the canvas.  Start from the middle, and work your way out, tightening as you go.


Next, trim the corners so you don't have a ton of fabric to form your corners.

Then fold like you're wrapping a present and trim as necessary.


If you've ever reupholstered furniture, this should be a cinch!  Then just glue your buttons in the shape of your letter, layering to fill in the gaps.


I also attached a ribbon for hanging by stapling it to the top edge of the canvas.


Another easy-peasy project!

    A move is only considered as a successful move when it’s guarded and superintend. Yes management is a key factor for a safe relocation. If you are planning for a moving and shifting, then you are supposed to be managed. And this management needs to be clearly reflected in your packing and moving. In case you are unable to spare adequate time for your managed move, then we would suggest you to go for the best remedy of that which is Removal Company.
