Easy DIY Framed Buffalo Check Minnesota State Pride Signs


Last week I purchased a yard of green and black buffalo check flannel at our local craft store.  I actually wanted red and black checks, but they said it was back ordered, and hard to get.  (I think buffalo checks are popular again this Christmas).

I found Ragon House wired red and black flannel ribbon at a local drug store.

I am going to do some crafting with this buffalo checked flannel and a couple of 4" x 6" rustic black picture frames.


Have you ever used HeatnBond Lite Iron-On Adhesive?  Heat n Bond is an iron on fusible web to bond fabrics.

Instructions are on the product, but below I will give you some information.

I found this Artminds State Stencil pack at a Michael's craft shop.  I use the Minnesota stencil all the time.


I cut off a piece of Heat n Bond that would fit my Minnesota stencil and ironed it on the wrong side of the fabric and ribbon.

I also traced the 4" x 6" glass from a picture frame on to the Heat N Bond and ironed it to my course weave muslin.

I then traced my Minnesota stencil backwards so the glue on the Heat N Bond would be on the back of my Minnesota cut out.

So the muslin, that also had fusible web on the back (Heat N Bond), was ironed onto a piece of 4" x 6" cardboard.  It's not a perfect fuse between cardboard and muslin, especially with the lite version of Heat N Bond, but it will definitely hold for this craft project.

After peeling off the paper back on my Minnesota shape, I ironed it onto the muslin rectangle.

Here are my two pieces of cardboard, with coarse muslin fabric fused to cardboard.  Minnesota flannel buffalo check shapes were then ironed on and fused to the muslin.

Next I stenciled on "home" with Momenta Lower Case Adhesive Letter Stencils and Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black.  Except the "o".

I sewed on a red or green button on the cardboard as the "o".  

These black frames that I used were really rustic/primitive in that the paint surface was not smooth.
