Burlap name plate

I wanted something fall looking for my front door.  I love anything burlap so I went to Pat Catan's and purchased an embroidery hoop.  I thought the oval shaped one was interesting.  I paid $5.79 for this size and added burlap that I had in my fabric stash. I stretched the burlap in the hoop.  I also purchased wooden letters at Pat Catans for 35 cents each. 

I traced the letter with a black sharpie and then filled them in with black paint.

Next I cut the burlap and hot glued it to the inside of the embroidery hoop.  Sorry I didn't take a picture of this step.

Here is the finished product hanging on my red front door.  I hung it with another piece of burlap.  I love how it turned out.  This was a very easy and cheap way to personalize your front door.

I'm thinking Christmas presents for the Orrico side of the family.  What do you think?
