It is the last day of September and do not hate me but today I am sharing my very first Christmas post! YAY.   I’ve teamed up with some wonderful gals who all have created amazing Handmade Christmas gift ideas.  At the bottom of the post you can go visit each person’s Christmas gift project.
 

Today I will be showing you how easy it is to make your loved one a Burberry Inspired Canvas Tote Bag!

I think we all know and love Burberry but wow can ANY of us afford ANYTHING from them?!  I certainly know I can’t.  I was so excited by how simple it was to recreate a similar inspired DIY crafty look, are you ready?
 
A similar Burberry patterned tote goes for $795 and mine was $12!

This is my third canvas tote project in the last year (West Elm inspire tote + Geometric Canvas Tote), so I’m learning little tips along the way.

Tip Alert!  So the paint doesn’t bleed through, it’s always important to have something inside your tote.  I always used a piece of cardboard but on the very bottom corners the paint always would bleed through.  So, grab an old magazine and cut the bottom to fit your exact tote shape.  Simple, easy, effective!

HOW TO MAKE A BURBERRY INSPIRED CANVAS TOTE BAG:

The key to recreating a Burberry look using only acrylic paint, is clean straight lines.  So, my first task was taping off all the lines with painters tape.

Then, I slowly started removing tape by each color section.

This was a slow process as paint had to dry before I could move to new sections, but even still I finished this project in a half days time.

It was also very helpful to draw out a quick sketch figuring out which colors I was going to use where.  This helped guide me in the taping and the painting process.

And for a final bit of personality, I used this super fun copper sequins tape.  I spotted it at Jo Ann Fabrics and knew it would be perfect for this project.  It’s a tape, so the back is adhesive but since I was applying it to canvas, I added a little bit of hot glue for extra sticking power.

If you do not want to add sequins tape to your tote bag, you could simply do this line with acrylic paint like the rest of the design has been done.

  1. I love your knock off totes Amy! I still remember your West Elm knock off tote that I’m going to make one day (when I have some “free” time). I want to run to Jo Ann’s right now and see if there’s any sequin tape for a project I have in mind. Thanks for sharing your super creative ideas!

  2. I absolutely adore this! I have shared on my social media pages and flipped in my Flipboard Magazine. I love Burberry & plan on making this for one of my reusable shopping totes! Thanks bunches for sharing your talents. Lots of love, Lisa
