I’m looking to create something similar to the signs below:
Mum has the burlap, & has a pole that she can pull it through –
Now, how do you wrtie on it?? The first one looks painted on – is there a particular paint that would work best? Thin paintbrush i assume….. And a ruler??
The second sign looks aweosme but it looks like it’s been printed on – HOW?? Who?
I don’t have a crafy bone in my body !

You can use fabric paint.
The bottom one could be a done several different ways.
1. You can draft the wording on your computer in the font of your choice. Print it out on a transparency. Project the transparency onto a wall on which you have hung the burlap piece. Outline the letters , then lay the burlap flat on a table and paint in the letters.
2. You could draft the wording on your computer in the font of your choice. print it out on Mylar sheets. Cut out the letters on the Mylar to make stencils. Then use the stencils to paint the sign.

I don’t actually know what those terms mean, but it’s given me a good start to google!

I know this is an old thread, but since someone else bumped it, I just wanted to say that I recently just found a website that sells stencils to use for signs.. which is so much cheaper than buying the signs already made!
I just purchased a stencil pack that included ceremony, reception, guest book, restrooms, parking & cocktail stencils for a little over $15 including shipping!
All you’d need to supply are the other materials.
