Burlap Flowers

These twisted burlap flowers are the perfect touch for fall.  Group them on a burlap covered wreath, small ones on a name card, napkin ring, or on a gift bag!

Materials:

  • Burlap
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue

Directions:

Start by cutting the burlap into strips, the thicker the strip the bigger the flower, the thinner the strip the smaller the flower.  For a medium size flower cut a 3” to 3 1/2” strip, the best way to get a straight strip with not a lot of raving is to measure, cut that string running the length and pull the string out, this way give you a perfect straight cut (to make all your strips straight start by being this on the end of the burlap, starting you off with a straight side).

Finger fold the strip in half, fold in one end (see picture below), with a drop of hot glue, glue down and roll once.

Keeping the burlap folded with your fingers, start to gently turn/twist the strip, wrapping around center, not too tight.  After a few times stop and glue into place, be careful with the hot glue too much and it will come through the burlap and burn your fingers.  Wrap and twist, take a look, undo it and start again before adding glue.

When you have the flower to the size you like, cut off the burlap, leaving a tail about 1 1/2″ long for gluing.  Just tuck the end to the back and glue.

Now you are ready to add the burlap flowers to a wreath or maybe make napkin rings!

Burlap comes in all colors, check it out next time you are in the craft store.
