Teacher Appreciation Gift – Stenciled Monogram Burlap Basket

Teacher Appreciation Week is right around the corner.  We all appreciate the hard work, love and dedication that our teachers put into our children’s education.  Do you need a quick, easy and cute teacher appreciation gift?  This stenciled monogram burlap basket was super simple and quick.

Burlap basket (I found mine in the Target $3 section and it’s nice and sturdy)
Tulip Fabric Paint
Sizzix Eclips2
Contact Paper


1.  Measure your basket, so that you know how big your letter (and name) can be.

2.  Using the electronic cutting machine software, I chose a font for the letter and name.  In this case, I used the Sure Cuts A Lot software.  And I chose the Bell Font.

3.  Using the Sizzix Eclips2, mat and my contact paper (placed on the mat face up), I cut out the letter and name.

4.  I didn’t want to use the actual letter cutouts, so I pulled up the outlined piece of contact paper and placed it on my burlap basket making sure it was centered.

5.  Using the Tulip Fabric Paint, I colored in the letters like a stencil.

6.  Once I was done with the fabric paint, I pulled up the contact paper stencil and then let it dry!

I think it turned out great!  And I know that my son’s teacher will love it!  Plus, I filled it with goodies for her!
