Hey there…so glad that you are visiting us today and hope that your week is off to a great start. Jennifer and I have each been busy bees in our homes cleaning, purging, decorating and creating. We have a few projects to show you in the coming weeks.
This past weekend was my birthday and I was excited to celebrate for three days. Yes, I know I’m spoiled but it was alot of fun. We get to do it all over again this weekend as it is Jennifer’s birthday! Yes, we are that close – even our birthdays are close together 🙂
Lately I have been dreaming of days spent on the beach. I feel the need for the sunshine on my face, the sand between my toes and a special bev with a tiny umbrella in my hand. Luckily for me, my dream is coming true and in a few short weeks we will be visiting our best friends in their new beach condo.
Which brings me to today’s project. Because I was feeling “beachy” and because I wanted to create a meaningful gift to give my friend I came up with this idea. I love craft projects, especially when they are quick and easy and this is just that!
A few months ago I purchased several burlap canvasses at the craft store. They were very inexpensive as they were on sale and sold in sets – two canvasses were only $4.00. I knew exactly what I wanted to create. My friend and I have been fortunate to travel together and share meaningful trips. I decided to incorporate a couple of my beach-found items onto the canvas art.
Here’s what you will need to make this DIY Burlap Canvas Beach Art:
- Burlap canvas – I used 8×10
- Jute rope
- Hot glue
- Pen or pencil
- Anything else that you might want to glue onto your art piece. I chose to add sea glass and shells.
Here is the exact jute that I used…purchased with a 40% off coupon 🙂
These are some of my ocean treasures that I have collected over the years. I love this little bottle…it was covered with barnacles that I managed to scrape off. The aqua glass became frosted from rolling and crashing through the ocean against the sand. I’m amazed that the bottle never broke.
