How To Make A Burlap Door Hanging

Burlap door (or wall) hangings are so very easy and inexpensive to make that you might end up with a whole collection of painted burlap shapes for different occasions and seasons. Here’s a couple of my other burlap hangings: The one I made most recently was for a baby shower. It ended up being a simple design since it was for a boy and I didn’t want to “gussie it up” too much but depending on the theme of your burlap hanging, you can add lots of colors and/or designs to your creation. Start out with a basic shape. I chose a baby onesie. I admit that I “googled” the internet to find a simple onesie shape to copy. You might be more creative than me and not need to do that (but it is a good source for getting ideas). Draw your shape our on a piece of paper the size that you want your hanging to be. I wanted the onesie to be the same shape on both sides so I drew one side on a folded piece of newspaper and cut it out. This will be your pattern. Place the pattern on a double thickness of burlap and pin it into place. Cut around the pattern. This will create the front and back of your hanging. Remove the pins and the pattern. You can use natural colored burlap for your hanging. For this project I got white burlap since it was the same price as natural and I was going to be painting it a light color. To join the front and the back burlap pieces you can sew around the edges or you can hot glue them. Whether you are sewing or gluing, be sure to leave an opening if you want to stuff the hanging later. Actually, I left an opening in one side and on each of the sleeves so that I could get the stuffing in the arms easily. If you are hot gluing, remember that the burlap has a fairly open weave. The glue will come through the layers so be careful not to burn your fingers. Only glue a few inches at the time then make sure the top and bottom layers are joined before moving along the edges to glue more. You will not be turning the shape inside out. The burlap will fray some but you can trim the strings off later. After the front and back are joined, you can start painting. The paint is what gives the burlap the stiffness that makes this project seem like it is more difficult than it is. You probably don’t have to paint the front and back if the back is not going to show but it will add good stiffness. Plan on having at least two bottles of regular craft paint if you want the back and front painted the same color. The burlap soaks up a lot of paint. It seems to be easier to spread the paint if you have some water to occasionally dip the brush in to make the paint a little less thick. This onesie is all one color so it was easy to paint. If you are going to add circles or dots to the design, I would just go on and paint the shape all one color then add the do-das. (To see circles on painted burlap click here.) If you are going to have areas of color or stripes, you might want to paint them in as you go. To have enough coverage and stiffness, plan on at least two coats of paint. Dry each coat of paint before adding more. Drying can take time since you are painting on fabric so this is not a good last-minute project ….take it from a last-minute person. After two coats of dried paint the hanging was stiff and looked good but I probably should have put three coats. The main design element of this burlap hanging is the baby’s name so I wanted it to be big and in a cute font. The one I decided on was “Fontdinerdotcom”. After printing it out from the computer and OK-ing the size on the onesie, most of the paper around the text was cut away. Then to transfer the text to the painted burlap, pencil was scribbled on the back side of the paper behind the text… …and then the edges of the text was traced onto the burlap. Usually that technique works better to transfer a design. The painted burlap did not “take” the tracing very well but it was good enough to follow if you looked closely. The baby boy’s nursery fabric is light blue, dark blue and tan colors so I went with a tan for the lettering. Acrylic paint was applied with a small brush for the name. For the final paint step, I like to outline the design in a thin line of puffy paint. I don’t know why but it seems to “finish off” the painted burlap hangings well. White was used since this was for a baby but black looks good on more colorful pieces. The shoulder seams were not the way I intended but after I had done one side wrong, I had to do the other side the same. To make the burlap hang-able, add a length of aluminum wire to the piece. Just poke the end of the wire through the painted burlap and fashion it into a curl then make a upside down “U” shape and repeat on the other side. You don’t have to stuff the hanging but it just seems to add some dimension to it. There are probably lots of things you could use to stuff the hangings with but I like to use plastic bags from the grocery store, etc. The only problem with them is that if your paint is not thick enough, bright writing on the bags can show through the burlap. You can cut the writing off the bag before stuffing if you like. Try not to stretch and fray the burlap at the openings you have left. It helps to use a ruler or yardstick and not your hands to push the stuffing in to accomplish this. After you have the hanging as puffy as you want, sew or hot glue the fronts to the backs at the openings. Trim away loose burlap strings and frayed edges. The hangings will do fine on a covered door but probably not on a mailbox out in the rain (or snow or sleet or hail). At the actual shower, the baby boy burlap hanging was used inside the house. After the shower, the mommy hung the burlap onesie on the soon-to-be-born baby’s door and added a bow on one side of the hanger…a good finishing touch.
