SPD: Barnyard & Burlap Trio



I’m linking up with Katie and Steph today for a DIY project.  I really didn’t know what to call this project, but it involved barnyard frames and burlap….so anything to do with these two things, count me in!

This was the original inspiration.  You can find it here.



Cute, right?  This project was really quite simple.  Once I finally decided on all the right supplies, I finished this in probably 20 minutes.

Supplies needed: 3 frames (mine were 10 X 8 and found at Home Goods), 3 12x12 metal sheets, monogram or letter, 2 bulldog clips, magnets, burlap, and black spray paint

First, cut your metal sheets to fit your frames.  I used the cardboard from the frames as a template.

Spray paint your bulldog clips

Adhere magnets on the back of your letter…I would not suggest the tape.  It was not strong enough and the letter kept sliding down once hung.

Wrap your metal sheet in burlap

Print out two pictures and assemble

And have your husband hang these bad boys!  Definitely love how these turned out.  I also love how easy it will be to change pictures.  I thought since it was right above Brutus’ food & water dishes, I would fill the bottom frame with a photo of himself.  You know, just in case he wanted to admire it while drinking some water.

This is amazing!!! It looks so great in that spot and of course you have to include Brutus in the photo mix. He would have felt left out. Haha.
