Faux-Burlap Thanksgiving Printable

When I saw Domestically Speaking's Burlap Laundry-Definition Sign I fell. in. love. She printed from her printer right onto her burlap! And then framed it! Genius! I planned to go right out and get some burlap so I could print my own definition onto it. But...I haven't done it yet. I still plan to. In the meantime though I have big burlap dreams but no burlap. But that can't stop me! And thus the Faux-Burlap Thanksgiving-definition printable was born.



What I was especially cognizant of was that I didn't just want to type regular text over the digital burlap background, since that wouldn't look realistic at all. I wanted a type-writer-looking font that looked distressed and shabby, the way text would really look if you printed it on such a coarse surface. And I struck gold. Seriously, how great is this text?! It's perfect!






Funny side-note: As I went to Domestically Speaking's website to get the link to give her credit, I found that she had created another burlap sign, this time with the definition of Thanksgiving, the same as I had! Great minds think alike!!




If you need some festive 'burlap' in your home as well, please visit my shop! http://craftily-ever-after.blogspot.com/p/featured.html

  7. Jessica I love your blog! Thanks so much for the printables! Is there a way that I can print these maybe in 5x7 of 4x6 for a smaller frame to put on my mantle! They would look awesome as a grouping on my mantle! Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for sharing.

  13. hmmm....am I missing something? where did you get the digital burlap and where do I download the printable? thanks, I love this:)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I am in love. I am sitting here planning out my menu, table, etc. I went to Just a Girl to see if there are some fun things! HELLO BURLAP darling sign. Thank you

  15. The digital burlap is part of the printable. To download it, click on the image of it (the last image in the post) and it will take you to another screen. Click the image again and it will become so big it can't all fit on the screen. Then right-click on it and save it to your computer and it's yours!

  22. Oh Sheesh ... I'm sucker for burlap and printing. This just got added to my "I'm officially done with THanksgiving projects list ... hmmm." Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. In response to printing these images smaller, you definitely can, but as they are designed as 8 X 10 inch documents, the ratio wouldn't be the same for a 4X6 or a 5X7 frame. I do sell custom printables so I would be happy to recreate any of these designs for you in smaller sizes ($10 per print) or another idea is to take this printable, print it even smaller than the frame you want to put it in, and "mat" it (as in, glue it on top of) with a coordinating scrapbook paper that you can trim to the exact size of your frame. :)

  24. That's one of the cutest things I've ever seen. How clever!

  53. LOVE.IT! Already working on my own version!! But, I've got to ask (as I think someone else has too): where did you get the burlap background? I have one in MS Publisher, but it's not nearly as nice looking as yours! Thanks!

  57. This was a burlap background that I already had, and I tweaked it in Photoshop to make it a prettier color. It was kind of dark and ugly when I started with it. :)

    It is just a digital image that you can print out, so it looks like burlap but is not burlap at all! :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I was trying to get to the digital image of the thanksgiving definition print, but for some reason it is not opening. Have you removed the free printable option, or is the issue with me :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. I printed out the Thanksgiving Defination. but I would like it with no background so I can print it on Burlap. I tried to type it in word, but could not get it to fit, any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
