RTW: Sheet Music and Burlap Frame TUTORIAL

Hi guys, you’re stuck with a tutorial from me today. Hope you don’t mind too much…since this is my blog and all! :) Anyways, I’m going to show you how to make my quick and easy sheet music and burlap frame. Super simple and you can make it into a Christmas decoration by just using sheet music for your fav Christmas carol.

  • sheet music
  • burlap
  • frame (I used a 16×24)
  • spray adhesive, repositional (not pictured, oops)
  • ink
  • ink blending tool (optional)
Cut burlap to fit inside frame. Leave a little extra room and don’t worry about making it perfect.
Tear around the edges of your sheet music.
Using your ink and blending tool, distress the edges.
Using the spray adhesive to attach the burlap to the frame’s glass. It’s easier if you have repositional spray adhesive. Then attach the sheet music using the spray adhesive again.
I added one of my 2 Minute Fabric Flowers. Love how it turned out!
Simple as that!

    NICE! I love it, and I love burlap…is the sheet music on top of the glass, or is the whole thing under the glass?
