Cross Decor with Burlap

You too can make this cross decor with burlap. If you are like me, you have seen this idea on Pinterest and possibly Facebook. But how do you make one? I have a full video tutorial for you below. The best part? It is super simple to make. Are you ready to get started on your own version?Cut lengths of burlap that will run all the way around the frame in both directions.

What You Will Need


  • Measure two pieces of burlap to wrap around the frame (length and width).
  • Use hot glue to secure the two ends of both pieces to the back of the frame in a cross shape.
  • From the back of the frame, run twine through the top right corner down to the bottom left corner. Then, again from the top left corner to the bottom right corner.
  • Wind your twine where the corners are pulled together in the center and pull to gather ribbon.
  • Repeat until the cross is the way you want it to look.
  • Tie off twine in the back.
  • Add vintage buttons or even an old brooch to the front of your cross d├ęcor to complete the look. I used vintage buttons secured with more hot glue.
