Cut six 8" sections from the burlap roll. 
Step 2
Fold each section in half and measure 1½" from the bottom. Cut at an angle starting at the bottom of the folded side to the 1½" mark on the opposite side. This will create a "V" when opened flat.

Measure 1" down from the top and tape off. Paint the stripe at the top using Pond acrylic. Let dry and remove tape.

Stencil letters onto each burlap section to spell "family" using Vanilla Bean acrylic paint and a Spouncer™ sponge. Let dry.
