Paint a Burlap Pillow for Valentines…

I bought a yard of basic burlap fabric at Walmart…

I have had trouble with their fabric in the past, but I wanted to make this a cheap project…( $1.28 for a yard!)

I then printed out a heart from our computer and cut it out to make a template.

My girls and I sponge painted the heart with red craft paint…

It really turned out just the way I imagined…

I sewed the burlap into a pillow for our couch.  As you can see the heart is no where near centered on the pillow…the only thing that would make it better, would be my sewing skills!

It was a fun and easy project though…
