Fence Board & Burlap Sack DIY Wall Pocket

I found this 3 pack of Leisure Arts burlap cinch sacks at a Walmart store recently.

I used one of the cinch sacks on a new project below.

I once again pulled out my new Organic Coffee stencil  from Old Sign Stencils.  I love this new stencil!

All pricing and shipping amounts on the website are stated in Canadian funds, and will be converted to US funds.

*Old Sign Stencils has provided me with complimentary samples. All opinions about these fabulous stencils are my own.

I taped "COFFEE" on a diagonal on the sack, and pounced "COFFEE" on the sack using Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash

I added "1 LB NET", a star, and some numbers from the stencil on the diagonal as well.

Here is the finished stenciled sack.

I then stained the board with Varathane Weathered Wood Accelerator.

This water based stain works really well with cedar boards.

I slid the coffee sack over the bottom of the board.

It fit really well.

The back of the sack was stapled to the back of the board.

A sawtooth hanger was added to the back, and a Metal Tag Frame (2 3/4") was screwed on the board front, near the top.

I printed a cardstock tag on my inkjet printer to add to the metal frame.

I cinched the bag a little tighter around the board after adding two long Ashland Dusty Miller stems from Michaels.

My wall pocket is very rustic!

The basic burlap sack and cedar board idea would work with other stencils or without a stencil as well, and of course with other plants.

  1. Great idea! We went to Jamaica years ago and I saved the burlap bags the coffee came in. Figured someday I would make them into something. This is perfect for one of them. Thanks

  2. What an adorable project Carlene! And I love how you mounted the little sack! Super cool outcome!
