Start by printing the words that you want on your handmade wall hanging.
Cut a piece of burlap to size and sew with a zig-zag stitch all the way around the outer edge. This will prevent any fraying both when you hang and as you work on your project.
Lay the piece of burlap over your poster-sized print. I had to do this on the floor because it was so large. You will be able to see the words through the burlap as shown below.
Use a sharpie marker to trace around all of the letters.
Then, you just have to fill in those lines with black outdoor paint.
While your wall hanging dries, stain your wood strips with the wood finishing cloths. Just rub on the stain, allow it to set a few seconds, and rub it off. Allow those to dry as well.
I then used a staple gun to attach the burlap to the back of the strips. I also used a staple to secure the twine to both ends of the top strip for hanging. Just tie a knot around the staple on either side.
Once you have added the burlap to the wood strips on both the top and bottom, you are ready to add this burlap wall hanging to your outdoor decor.
