Burlap Canister Labels DIY

Recently I received an order for some custom canister labels and I thought I’d share with you how I made them.
blog 1
I cut 3x5 rectangles of burlap and white felt and glued them together to make each label. 
blog 2
Then I made stencils and painted each word with fabric paint using the same method I used on my Ballard knock-off pillows.

I added some silver bling (brads) in the corners to give them a little sparkle.

The brads also keep the jute ties in place on the back of each tag:

The jute ties can easily be adjusted with the brads depending on how tall each canister or jar is.
