Playroom: Welcome Rug

Getting overloading with the playroom craft parade??  I love showing it all off.  I’ve been wanting to do a couple of things that are everywhere in the craft blog world – use burlap and do freezer paper stencils.  A play welcome mat was a great project to combine the two.
I printed the letters off using Word.  Then I grabbed some freezer paper – it even says great for crafts!
With the piece of freezer paper over the letters I printed, I used a razor blade knife thing (utility knife?) to trace the letters and cut them out.  I thought this would be slow and tricky, but it really wasn’t.
Then I just ironed on the freezer paper to the burlap and used it as a stencil.  When the paint had dried about 5-10 minutes, I peeled the freezer paper off.
I thought it needed more interest and really wanted to add some ruffles (must be all those burlap ruffle runners I’ve been seeing) but I have a toddler who can trip on flat ground and who knows what would happen with ruffles to step on.  So I just sewed a couple of flat strips of fabric on the top and bottom.  That was it!
