DIY Burlap & Design Foam Wall Art Tutorial

“Love is in the air…”  And now is a great season for crafting! Today I wanted to share with you a fun DIY  wall art tutorial on how I made my Burlap & Design Foam Wall Art piece. As you can see, it does have hearts and “love you’s” on it so it fits with the season, but I feel this is a piece I can either hang on my wall or sit on my mantle the whole year through. And perhaps the red and black simply doesn’t go with your decor…Switch up the colors! Make it your own.

    How did you cut the sentiment with your Cricut? Can you provide instructions on how to cut?

      These are a couple of projects that use the Cricut too and might be able to help you. (This one is a Silhouette)
