My hubby is digging this Bee-autiful Decor! Check out how easy this craft is and how you can add some umph to any small signs or plaques you may have!
Supplies I Used
- 3 –8″ x 8″ Burlap canvas

- Glue gun and glue stick

let’s get started
This project is way to easy!
I found these three cute small plaques in the Spring section at Hobby Lobby.
By themselves they are adorable and would look great in any display along side any Spring-y items but I wanted to figure out how I could make them stand out more and hang on the wall by my coffee bar!
It just so happened that the burlap canvases were on sale at the same time!
Instantly I thought of how I could make my own Bee-autiful wall decor!
Heat up your glue gun and remove the wrapping from the burlap canvases.
Save those wood strips that come with the canvases for possible future crafting ideas!
I’ll think of something for them.
Next, you can use a screwdriver or pliers to remove the staples holding the wire hanger on each of the plaques.
I just folded mine over the backside since I was in a hurry.
Putting together your Bee-autiful Decor
Once everything was prepped, I applied a generous amount of hot glue to the backside of the wood plaques.
The only area I didn’t apply the hot glue was about a 1″ border around the edges.
I didn’t want any hot glue seeping out along the side of the wood plaques.
Next I lined up the plaque over the burlap canvas and did my best to get it in the centered and held it in place until the glue cooled or cured.
Then I moved on and repeated this same process until I had all three Bee-autiful decor pics completed!
The hangers that are in the canvas section I usually avoid.
I’ve had a few canvases fall off the walls using them, so I like to use the canvas frame and nail, or a sawtooth hanger and nail.
And, if the canvas is light enough, 3M strips are wonderful too!
This style of decorating has many options.
Instead of using burlap canvases for your Bee-autiful Decor, you could always use your choice of frames to apply the wood plaques too.
