Burlap Rosette Heart Wall Decor

I have been wanting to post this for weeks now, but holy burlap rosettes, this took forever to finish!
Let's just say, I had burlap flowers coming out of my ears. Finally, this week I enlisted Adam, my currently injured and awaiting surgery husband, to cut the burlap so I could focus on gluing. This was a hugggee help! And thanks to his help, I present to you (finally) my Burlap Rosette Heart wall decor!

in order to make this, you will need:
beadboard, paint, burlap, hot glue gun

The project overall was simple, just time consuming. I swung by home depot one day and bought a piece of bead-board  I had them cut it to size right in the store so I could get working on it right when I got home. I used photoshop to create a heart outline that would be big enough for my 40inx30in piece of bead-board  I traced the heart onto the board using pencil.

Once my heart was traced, I painted everything but the heart form navy blue using a foam brush.

Then came the fun part...making the rosettes out of burlap. I bought 3 yards of burlap, and had a little left over. I used my hot glue gun to make the rosettes, and to adhere them to the bead-board.

We used 3M strips (the ones that hold up to 16 lbs) to pin it up on our wall.

It is great to finally have something up on those poor living room walls!

 And note to self (and others I suppose): don't mix burlap, even if you think it isn't noticeable! I started with some burlap I had lying around in the basement, then ran out and had to buy more. I didn't think it was very noticeable, but I can definitely tell in these pictures. blahhh.

Well, what do you think? Did anyone else notice the random mismatched burlap (before I mentioned it)? Adam claims I'm the only one that can tell.


  1. So sweet and adorable! I love navy so much right now too.

  2. I love it. It is so pretty. Sounds too laborious for me to undertake, but it sure is pretty.

  3. What a beautiful focal piece! I love the choice of navy, too. So beautiful! Thank you so much for linking up at "Get Your DIY On"! I hope to see you Sunday with your fall wreath! Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I love this! I didn't even notice the difference of color until you said something, I suppose it adds character! ;)

  5. This looks great, what a fun use for burlap. Really adds character to your room. Stopping by from "Get your DIY on" party.

  6. This is beautiful! I made a burlap rosette wreath and it took me forever to do... I can't imagine doing an entire beadboard of them! It really turned out really nice, this was the first thing I noticed in your fall home tour! Just love it!
