DIY: Burlap monogram

Step one: Gather your supplies.
You'll need burlap, freezer paper, iron, scissors, computer + printer.

Step two: Create your template.
How do you want it to print on your burlap? I personally used Microsoft Publisher, but you can use whatever program your heart desires. 

Step three: Ironing.
Iron the shiny side of the freezer paper downward (touching the burlap). Concentrate on the corners, making sure they're completely adhered to the burlap.

Step five: Print your document.
Insert your burlap paper into your printer and print away.

Step six: Frame your burlap paper.
I went out and bought a new frame that was on sale at TJ Maxx. Be sure to hang it somewhere that everyone will see!
