Grain Sack Wall Hanging and Printable

A while back I found a vintage grain sack at an estate sale...

I used it as a pillow cover for a long time, 
not knowing quite what to do with it...

(you can check out that awesome ladder shelving here)

then I had an idea...

I built a frame using leftover wood

cut the bag open down the center of the back, 
then stapled the grain sack around the frame.

It is perfect now to display at the corner of my mantel.

Being an "East Coast Girl" myself, 
I love the wordage on the sack!

Here is a free printable if you
would like to use this image to transfer to your own project.
