I purchased this Halloween burlap at Hancock Fabrics several years ago.  I believe that they are no longer in business, sadly.  I wasn't sure what I would so with it but if I didn't buy it then, when was I going to?

So jump ahead to this year (we should have jumped ahead to at least 2021) and I got the idea to attach the burlap to a wooden frame.  

I purchased several sizes of canvas frames: 12" x 16" 12" x 12" and 18" x 18".  You can find those at many stores with a small art dept.

My husband worked with me and we cut the fabric 2 to 3 inches larger than the frame all the way around.  We actually just laid the fabric over the canvas, instead of removing the canvas and just using the wooden frame.

Fold the material over to give yourself a thinker edge.


Using a staple gun made things go quickly and easily.  Fingers still intact, too!

We ran a little short on one frame and instead of folding it under, we stapled as it was and then added a thin bead of hot glue to prevent it from fraying.  I used a wooden craft stick to spread the hot glue--again, fingers were good!

I was going to miter the corners but we just folded and stapled to make a clean, flat edge. 

You can leave it as is to display or.... can add embellishments to your work.  I purchased ready-made stickers and Ali made this with the "BOO!" stickers.  She did use a bit of hot glue to the under side of the letters since the fabric isn't a smooth surface.

Ali Rose and her creation!

I added lettering, too, and an orange button for effect.

 I hope this gives you some ideas of your own to make a Halloween canvas!  

Happy Halloween!

We love chicken enchiladas at our house.  I haven't made them for awhile but lately, maybe due to the cooler temperatures, I have been making casseroles.  Last night it was lasagna--I do make a pretty good lasagna.  When my kids were growing up, especially with 5 sons, I usually made 2 pans of what ever casserole I was making. Or a huge pot of TACO SOUP so my boys and their friends had plenty for seconds.

I also decided one day that I was in too much of a hurry to roll the enchiladas up--yes, I really was.  So I decided to make a casserole out of the recipe and it worked out great! 



It just seemed quicker, less messy, and still the same delicious flavors.  Here, with no further ado, is my recipe for Chicken Enchilada Casserole.

2 large chicken breasts, boneless or not
2 cans diced green 
.25 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 cup diced yellow onion
1 cup sour cream
5 Tbs. butter
2.5 cups chicken broth (can use the broth from cooking the chicken)
 2 to 3 cups Colby Jack cheese, shredded 
Corn tortillas

Boil the chicken breasts till cooked.  Remove from broth and allow to cool (we don't want to burn our fingers shredding it).  After shredding the chicken, place in a large mixing bowl, along with the green chiles.  Melt 2 Tbs. of butter in a large fry pan, add the flour and salt and stir till mixed.  Add the broth and stir together while it boils/thickens for approximately 1 to 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and add the sour cream and 1/2 of the cheese--stir.  Add .5 cups of the sauce to the chicken and chiles mixture.

Grease a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.  Pour sauce over the bottom to cover, add chicken mixture, cheese and a layer of corn tortillas.  Repeat layering and end with chicken and cheese on top.

Bake for 25 minutes in 350 degree oven.  

Serve with salsa or more sour cream, if desired.  Leftovers are great--if there are any!
