How to make burlap roses



 
I have been asked quite a few times to create a how-to on making burlap flowers.  These beauties I am also incorporating into the flower arrangements at my cousins wedding. 
They are quite easy to make although they make take a few trys before  you have the process down.

Things you will need:
Burlap
Scissors
Hot Glue gun and glue
OR needle and thread.


TIPS:
-Try to cut the burlap along the weave to prevent any loose ends
-When creating large flowers, try to keep the "petals" towards the top. Hot glue the petal to secure shape.
Oh and if you have any scrap material laying around or extra ribbon...turn it into a flower using this same method.

Here is my first how-to video. Please excuse my voice as I am getting a cold. 




Enjoy and have fun!

  2. Lori, it may take a couple tries to get started. The pictures do not do them justice at all. They are very pretty.

    Also, I am surprised I didn't lose my voice. I had to start over 2 times because I kept losing it.


I would love to hear from you!
