Framing A Mandala Stenciled On Burlap With A Thrifted Quilting Hoop

I found this wooden 19" quilting hoop at Goodwill recently.

I didn't plan to start quilting!

First, I wiped down the two hoops with a rag and hot soapy water.

Then, I brushed Minwax Gel Stain in Walnut on the larger, outer hoop to darken it up.  I left it to dry overnight.

I pulled out my large DecoArt Mandala 18" x 18" Stencil and taped it on a square of burlap fabric that I had purchased at Joann Fabrics a few years ago.

I pounced the stencil design onto the burlap using Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash.

I centered the mandala over the bottom hoop and placed the larger, stained hoop over the fabric and bottom hoop.

I pulled the fabric taut, and twisted the wingnut until the hoop was tight.

At first, I tried cutting the excess burlap off with a scissors, but I couldn't get close enough to the hoops for a nice edge, so a razor blade was used to get closer and cleaner.

Here is my finished mandala wall art piece!

The project was really pretty easy, and since I had the burlap, paint, and stencil on hand from previous projects, inexpensive too.
