Hey Friends!!

If you’ve been following me over the weekend on Facebook and/or Instagram, then you probably saw my posts about the upcoming Michaels & Hometalk Pinterest Event that is taking place next Sunday!

If you didn’t see my posts, then let me just say that I am SO THRILLED to be representing the Hometalk team at the Michaels Store in Shiloh, IL!!

The party is this Sunday, February 16th from 1:00-4:00pm and I would LOVE for you to join me!!

You can RSVP to my local event by clicking HERE. 

Not in the Shiloh, IL area, but would still like to attend?!  NO WORRIES!  You still can!

There are 100 Michaels Stores & bloggers participating in the event throughout the United States & Canada.

For a full list of participating locations, click HERE.


Today, I would like to share one of my projects for the event…..this DIY Layered Burlap Monogram wall hanging:

Isn’t it cute?!  

I’m hoping that it will soon find its home in my master bedroom…hints the color choices! :) Eventually, I would like to have a small gallery wall in the master & would love to incorporate this burlap monogram!

This project was super easy & inexpensive to make! Aren’t those the best kind?!

My mom & I headed to Shiloh this past Friday afternoon to check out the Michaels store & gather my supplies for this event. (I actually bought a whole other set of supplies for a separate craft that I hope to be sharing tomorrow and/or Wednesday…stay tuned for that!)  Before we left I downloaded the Michaels Store app.  By doing so, I was able to score some killer coupons! Here is what I bought for this particular project:

**Side note: I already had the Mod Podge at home from previous projects, but it is available at Michaels. You will also need a hot glue gun & glue sticks in addition to the supplies you see above.

I first began the project by tracing out the shape of wooden plaque on the scrapbook paper. Once it was all traced, I cut it out with scissors.

To adhere the scrapbook paper to the wooden plaque, I used Mod Podge.

For those of you who have never used Mod Podge before, here is a brief overview of how I did it. I first brushed a layer of Mod Podge over the surface of the wooden plaque. I placed my scrapbook paper cut-out on top of the plaque & smoothed it out with my hands to get rid of any air bubbles.

Once it was dry, I then brushed a layer of Mod Podge over the top of the scrapbook paper to seal it in place. The Mod Podge goes on white, but dries clear. I actually repeated this step for a second time to ensure a good seal. It is important to let it dry well between coats.

Once that was done, the only thing left to do was to layer all of my goodies onto my burlap canvas. I first attached the wooden plaque to the burlap canvas and then added the additional layers you see below. Everything was attached using hot glue.

And here she is in all her glory! ;)

I absolutely love the laser wood cut-out that sits on top of the wood plaque. Isn’t the detail just fabulous?! Michaels had so many of these in the store…all equally beautiful!!

Pin It

Be sure to visit your local store, check out all of the Pinterest-inspired displays, buy your supplies & meet us in the classroom that afternoon to create your own pin-worthy project!! Another side note, I would encourage you to visit the store a few days before the event if at all possible…I spent well over 2 hours browsing the store & trying to make a decision on which projects I wanted to tackle…so many wonderful things to see & choose from!

So, if this DIY burlap monogram isn’t your thing, stop by the store anyway to check out all the other possibilities! You may even have a Pinterest project in mind that you’ve been wanting to make for sometime now…..why not make it this Sunday at the Michaels/Hometalk Pinterest Party Event?!  Don’t just pin it, MAKE IT!!!

  2. Love your project, Tonya! Have fun on Sunday!

  3. How beautiful! I love all of the layers, especially the intricate laser cut piece!

  4. This is beautiful! If you don’t mind sharing, did you make your subscribe box? If so, how? I’ve been trying to figure out how to make something like that. I use a photoshop image linked to my mailchimp box, but yours looks amazing! :)

  5. This is so beautiful! Enjoyed getting to know you + your blog from the Pinterest Party!

  6. What is the scroll thing called? Did you get that at Michael’s too?

    • Hi Andrea! I’m not sure that it has a name! It’s just a wooden scroll laser-cut-out. There is a whole section of them at Michaels!

  7. Hi Tonya, I love this and am featuring it tonight at 7pm PSB on the blog for our pinterest party blog hop link party. Thanks for such great inspiration. Have fun at your party on Sunday! Sharon

  8. What a great combo!! I love all those laser cutouts in Michaels – ideas abound in that aisle!! Good luck this weekend!

  9. I love this ! I am going to make one for our home and may even hang on the front food :). I also am going to make for a friends new baby and for a friend that just moved into her own home Thanks for sharing

  10. Hi Tonya,
    I just wanted to let you know that I hosted one of the Pinterest Parties locally and your burlap monogram was the biggest hit. I had loaded all the photos of all of the bloggers’ projects into a gallery on my iPad so people could scroll through and get ideas. About half of the 25 people who came through wanted to make your exact project! I am going to share some photos of the event on my blog in a few days and I’ll send you the photos of what you inspired! Great job xox

  11. I just saw this at Michael s and thought, this is my next DIY!

  12. So pretty! I want to make one!

  13. Emily Densmore says:

    I was wondering what size of burlap stretched canvas you used?

  14. This is great! There are all sorts of variations you could do, love this idea :)

  15. I hosted a Pinterest Night at my home last night and this project was a hit! There were 9 of us ladies and I wish I could post a picture of all the completed projects for you to see. Everyone put their own twist on colors, ribbon placement, etc. Great project idea!

  16. Sarah A says:

    I love this! My question as a newbie crafter is – does a hot glue gun really do the job long term? It’s not too much weight hanging on the burlap between the letter and the other 2 layers? Just don’t want to have a disaster on my hands. thanks! :)

  17. Valerie Hudson says:

    Hi, I would love to do this but I cannot find the wooden scroll cut out. I dont see them on Do you know of any other place or website that sells them?

  18. I absolutely love how charming this craft would came out. I would love to do this and have it on the shelf behind out front door to spruce up our entry way. I may just be trying this in the weeks to come!

  19. This is a better, upgraded idea of a project I had in mind, absolutely love it and can’t wait to make it!

  20. So I was trying to find the wooden plaque and the laser cut wood cutout and I can’t find them at michaels at all? I even looked online. Did you find yours in the store or online? I would love to make this just having a difficult time finding all the supplies.

  21. Nicole DeRogatis says:

    i can’t get the burlap to adhere to the plaque with the hot glue. Suggestions?
