DIY: Burlap Canvas Silhouette

I was compensated with free craft materials from Michael’ Stores for this project. All opinions expressed and the project I created are my own.

Project #2: DIY Burlap Canvas Silhouette

Part II of my Michael’s Store projects allowed me the opportunity to FINALLY do something with the silhouettes that I had made of all the kids during our trip to Disney last year.

This Sunday, I am the luckiest little blogger this side of Interstate 71. I will be the featured craft blogger at the Fairlawn, Ohio Michaels Stores. And because I started thinking about how stinkin’ famous I’m gonna get by accepting a crafting challenge using Michaels products, I took an inordinate amount of time slapping my homemade marketing (with my photo) on every telephone pole between home and the store. I even changed my entire website, blog logo and layout…within these last two weeks. Oh…and I *might” have made business cards.

Then I called the press. (Along with Miriam from Hometalk, who completely rocks).

  3. Hi,
    My dad had something like that of me when I was younger, so it brought back memories of that silhouette.
