I don't know about you, but I have several burlap sacks at my house. . .
I've gotten them from flea markets (hubby brings them home from beer festivals) and I love using burlap as decor. (If you don't know this about me then I don't think you've been paying attention)
Because I have burlap sacks I want to use them, so I had a good idea to make an easy wall hanging from one of my favorites!
I started with the burlap bag . . .
And an empty wall . . .
I grabbed a scrap piece of furring strip wood from Lowe's (less than $1 for an 8 ft piece)
Before cutting, I marked the length I needed based on the width of the burlap sack. Cutting was easy with our Dewalt double bevel miter saw (not a paid endorsement). It's the only saw I feel safe using.
I stained the wood with some stain I had on hand. Minwax Gel Stain in Aged Oak.
Because I wasn't picky on the color and detail I did not sand or prep the wood in any way.
To attach the burlap to the wood I used our brad nailer. It makes the job easy and secure.
Lastly I used picture hangers (from Hobby Lobby) to give the wood a way to hang on the wall.
It's ready to hang! I've got my level, hammer and nails!

I love the simple and rustic way to decorate my room. What do you think?
Do you have burlap sacks you need a project for?
