French Vintage Friday ~ vintage oat sack repurposed

Happy Friday, friends!!! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week!

Today, for French Vintage Friday, I’m showing y’all how I turned an old oat sack into a sign to hang in my kitchen.

I started with a vintage oat sack, and a picture that I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby.

I took the picture out of the frame.

Next, I cut the oat sack to allow it to fit inside the frame. I first cut the bottom off.

Then flipped the sack over, and cut up the back.

I opened the sack and laid it flat on the floor, to measure it for the frame.

Then placed the sack on the picture/hard cardboard and wrapped the sack around it. I secured the sack to the cardboard/picture using a hot glue gun.

I then put it back in the frame, and used a bit more glue to make sure it was securely in the frame.

Using command strips, I hung my “new” sign above the peg rail in my kitchen.

Such a fun project that cost less than $10!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!
