I’ve been curious whether screen printing would work on burlap. I decided to give it a try with a few items I found at Hobby Lobby. I purchased a pre-made burlap banner and 4-count place mats. You can get a similar banner on Amazon for less. You can also find the placemats on Amazon here.
I’m excited to report that it works! I love that with a thin coat of paint, you can get a rustic, worn look. You can also use a little more ink (less pressure on the squeegee) to get a more solid color.
This would be a great DIY wedding project. You could add your monogram to burlap centerpieces or make a banner for the gifts table. There are so many options! Whatever you create with your vinyl cutter, you can screen print onto vinyl!

Also, this week, I used this adorable free cut file from Happy Go Lucky to screen print 2 t-shirts and a pillow….all with one vinyl cut! With screen printing and my vinyl cutter, I only had to weed this design one time. Once it is on my Speedball screen, I can make as many prints as I need. For this design, I made 2 shirts and a pillow for our entryway.
