I decided to play with some burlap I have and see what kind of flowers I can make. The problem when I play like this is, I don’t take pictures along the way because I’m not sure if it will turn out like I want–and then I end up with a great finished product with no pictures!
This time I remembered to photograph the testing too. 🙂
I took my roll of 6″ burlap and cut 8 circles out of it. 4 large and 4 small(er). Just cut 4 squares of the same size and then fold them in half and cut a half-round out. I cut all of mine together because it was quicker–and it also added a bit of variation to the flower petals and looked great. A bit of imperfection is great with a medium like this.
Next, you need to fold a circle in half and then fold it over one more time. It doesn’t matter which one, because you will do this with all 8. You just need to hook it together at the point so it stays like this. You can staple it, sew a few stitches, or do like I did.
I poked the wire of the bling through the burlap and then wrapped the remainder of the wire around the point.
Then glue the 4 big circles on your base.
And the finished product is a very simple pretty flower.
