{DIY Burlap Letter}

I'm gonna warn you guys, the next few days there are going to be LOTS of DIY posts. I have been going a little crazy lately, trying to finish up all of the little projects i have planned for Giulianas sweet little room! As you know, a lot of the things in her room are handmade, & i am trying to keep it that way! {Wall art, mobile, Doily lamp.. & more to come} 
Every Time i go to Anthropologie, i see those adorable fabric letters that they sell, & i want them! but they are so expensive! & they never have a "g". So i decided i would just make my own version :)

{DIY Burlap Letter}
You will need:
A cardboard letter
A marker
Hot glue gun
Glue sticks
Trace your cardboard letter onto the burlap twice.
Cut out your letters.
Using your glue gun, glue one of the letters to the front.
Do the same on the back.
Your burlap should cover the entire surface of the letter once glued on. 
Using your twine, begin to wrap your letter, gluing it down as you go. 
Keep going!! wrap it nice & tight so that your twine lines up nicely.
Fill the entire width of the letter, covering every inch of the Cardboard letter. 
& you're done!! 
Put it on display :) 
We put it on the shelf we made over Giuliana's changing table, Along with the chalk board we made {tutorial soon!} & some little special trinkets :) 

This project took me about 20 minutes. It was super easy!
Happy Friday :)
