Cristina Crafts: Creative Uses for Burlap


  • Stray burlap
  • Plain canvas
  • Staple gun


  1. Place your canvas in the middle of the burlap.
  2. Cut the burlap with an extra 4-6 inches on each side (depending on your frame).
  3. Wrap the burlap around the canvas, fold at the corners (same as you would a wrapping a gift).
  4. Using a staple gun, staple your burlap into your canvas, staples be 3-4 inches away from each other.

Note: remember to keep your burlap taught. Having someone else to hold it in place while you staple really helps. If you’re doing this alone, you can tape each corner as you go along.
