Burlap Music Picture

I made this picture about 14 years ago at an Enrichment Night Activity before I was married.  It has been hanging up in every house that I have lived in ever since.  Music is a big part of my life, so I have really loved this picture. 

 I haven't done anything to it until about a month ago, I painted the picture black and I love it!  I think it brings out the black in the music. And I think it looks so much better!  The frame was just a natural brown wood before.


So this was really easy to make!  We had this song printed off on a transparency type paper.  This song is found in the LDS Children's Hymn Book.   For the background, behind the song, I used burlap.  I taped the transparency and burlap to the mat and you're done!


I usually hang this up by my piano.  It's easy and beautiful!

That is so cool and so easy!! I can't believe I didn't think of that before, I have a Family Proclamation done the same way, although not with burlap. That is so cute, I'm making one for my living room/piano room very soon as that room is getting a mini makeover. Thank you!!
