Burlap Door Hangers

Burlap Door Hangers
Materials: Burlap
                     Hot Glue
- I would think of an idea of what I wanted and free hand the drawing on a piece of newspaper and cut out the design.
- I would then use safety pins and pin the newspaper design to the burlap (fold in half, so it doubles the design) and cut out the design.
- Now that you have two pieces of the design on burlap, take one of the pieces and lay it on scrap newspaper to paint on.
- Paint the design to the color of your choice and let it dry.
- Once it is completely dry, take the painted burlap and lay it on top of  the second piece of your design and start hot gluing the inside around the edge to form the two pieces together.
- Leave about and inch and a half to stuff a little stuffing in side to give it a 3D look. 
- Cut the wire long enough for it to hang on the door and poke the wire through the burlap on each side and curve it to make a swirl, so it will stay in place.

These are a few burlap door hangers I have done for people and myself. I like to have one for each holiday and occasion.
