Most of our items were purchased at Hobby Lobby (♥ that store)!
Next, you need to figure out how you want to hang it. Some letters are easier than others :) Having a last name with a "J" was a little tricky but I think it turned out nice. Some letters you can simply wrap the burlap around the top.
I folded a piece of burlap and hot glued the ends on the back of my letter. Then I took a piece of muslin and put it through the loop on top.
Then came the fun part, embellishing!
I made a simple bow (just tied a knot) with a wide stripe of burlap and then hot glued it to the burlap attached to my letter.
I sanded the edges to get a distressed look and then added a few more rosettes to the bottom of the J also.
