My Faux Vintage Grain Sack

Monday, April 6, 2009

Remember when I was playing with the idea of making my own faux vintage grain sack in this post? Well I finally did it!

I basically followed Joy's instructions on Joys of Home. First, I put together a pattern I liked and then printed the words in a large font. I held the pattern and fabric up to a window and traced the pattern on the fabric in pencil, and then painted the design with black craft paint.

I think I have the perfect spot for it, but I can't show you yet. Stay tuned....

I want to try it too! How did you make the crown and the vine? Is it a stencil?

AnNicole @ OurSuburbanCottage said...

Thanks everyone! I'm really happy with how it turned out, and it REALLY wasn't that hard to do.

I didn't use a stencil. For the crown, I did a search for crown clipart online and printed out one I liked that I knew would be easy to replicate. For the vine, I eyeballed it and drew it freehand.
