Stenciled Burlap Sacks DIY

Stenciled Burlap Gift Sacks

You may know that I am obsessed with dollar bins at retail stores.  I ALWAYS get sucked in.  There are very few times where I walk by and find nothing. This time I found some little burlap sacks and some pretty trim. I tossed them into my basket and knew exactly what I was going to make with them.  Here is my tutorial for stenciled burlap sacks.  They make fun wedding favors, gift wrapping, or even great gifts as-is for jewelry or other small trinkets.

Materials:

  • Dollar bin burlap sacks
  • Various trim
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Black craft paint
  • Foam spouncer
  • Small paper plate
  • Stencils

Here are the cute little bags I found.  They were three for two dollars.

I also found this pretty trim in mint, yellow, and white.

I used adhesive stencils for this project. The Martha Stewart brand is great because the fuzz from the burlap rubs right off the stencil if you run it under a little water and it’s as good as new.  I placed the stencil on my bag and used a spouncer and black paint.

I made each bag a little different.

Next, I added trim to each bag using a hot glue gun.  You can use fabric glue as well, but I found it easier to use hot glue (I’m an Expert Hot Gluer!).

Here they are… adorable, right?  I am using these as gift bags for small gifts. I think these would also make really sweet wedding or baby shower favor bags as well.
