Burlap Matting

You might be surprised that the box from this morning’s bowl of cereal could become wall décor that rivals that of Pottery Barn. Just check out this burlap mat that Melissa from Redfly Creations created from cardboard. A spray painted secondhand frame makes this project all the more thrifty!

Melissa’s frame and burlap mat are similar to the Multi-Mat Frames from Pottery Barn.

    Love your frame! Do you need to turn the burlap in where it meets the picture or do you just make a sharp cut with scissors?

    Thanks much! Lucy

    • Hey Lucy, You may want to try contacting Melissa directly by clicking on the link in the post if you don’t get a response from her here. Thanks for reading! 🙂

    • Hi Lucy,

      I folded the burlap in, but then clipped just a little bit right in the corners, and pulled the burlap really tight with clear tape. Trust that helps.
