Burlap Bird Canvas

While I was cleaning out my closet, I found a lace vest that I fell in love with. The floral appliques are exquisite so I knew that I couldn't just get rid of something with so much potential. Plus it was perfect for this really fun and easy craft.

 I gathered all of my supplies and began to craft away.
12x12 Burlap Canvas
Martha Stewart Bird Stencil
Floral appliques
Pearl beads
Hot glue gun
Black Paint
Sponge (Paper towels work well too)
Upholstery Nails
Music Sheet
 First, I figured out how I wanted my placement of the stencil on my canvas. Then I taped down the stencil and sponge painted until I got the look that I wanted. (I didn't do thick coats because I liked the aged, antique look of a lighter coat)
 Next, I started embellishing by hot glueing down my floral appliques and bird wings cut out from a music sheet.
I also added small pearls to give a little more detail to my floral appliques.
 I finished by adding a rusticy-vintage flare with upholstery nails around the outside edge.
 Now you can make your own easy vintage looking burlap bird canvas!

Thank y'all for reading,
