What You Will Need


  • 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.


  • I printed in poster mode so that it printed out on a bunch of sheets of paper that could be taped together into one large poster.
  • Be sure to protect your work surface as the paint will bleed through the burlap.
  • I recommend good quality outdoor paint so your handmade wall hanging will last as long as possible.
  • Outdoor Command hooks are what I recommend for this job. I have found they work great in my space!
