Burlap Monogram Canvas

I had an 11x14 canvas that I wasn't going to use.  I have also not really ever used nail head trim but wanted to!  So, I decided to attempt something for my mantle. 
First, I cut out the burlap, then used my trusty Silhouette machine to cut out the W with vinyl.  I placed that on the burlap, then used white fabric paint and sponge brushed it on. 
I let the paint dry and pulled off the vinyl.  At that point, I used my staple gun and stapled around the back edges, pulling the burlap tight in the corners.  I finally was able to use the nail heads, which not only looks great but also keeps the burlap in place. 
That's it! Quick and easy!!
