What You Will Need


  • Start by covering your work surface well. The paint easily bleeds through burlap and will ruin furniture.
  • On the burlap, draw a pencil shape and outline the eraser, lead, and "wood" part of the pencil. The pencil can be any size you choose.
  • Cut the shape from the burlap.
  • Paint the eraser, silver band, and "lead" parts of the pencil in the respective colors. I love a pouncer brush for really getting into the burlap fibers.
  • After the paint has dried, use a small paint brush to outline the different pieces in white. Allow to dry.
  • Across the body of the pencil, add white polka dots with a pouncer brush.
  • Now, add a monogram or message to the body of the pencil. Freehand the words using a pencil, then trace with a small paint brush dipped in black paint.
  • For hanging, add a small piece of wood to the back at the top of the eraser portion with tacky glue. After that has dried, add twine to the wood strip for hanging.


I love these sponge pouncer brushes for use with burlap.
