With wedding season well on its way, now is the perfect time to start planning!

Creating your very own DIY bouquet wrap could add the perfect touch of personalization and style you're looking for. 

In this A Makers' Studio tutorial, we're going to show you just how easy it is to transform boring burlap into an incredible bouquet wrap with a floral design. 


The A Makers' Studio products used in this tutorial can be found at the bottom of the page. 

Step 1: Begin by cutting out your Adhesive Mesh Stencil of choice and placing a section onto the burlap.

Step 2: Using your ChalkArt Spreader, begin applying the Can’t Never Could Gel Art Ink to the stencil, applying enough pressure to push the ink through the mesh stencil.

More is better when applying, so be a little more generous with the ink.

Step 3: Once done, carefully remove the stencil and wash it with lukewarm water.
