Burlap Flower Tutorial

 Check out this easy tutorial for making burlap flowers...




Follow Along...  :)



Start by cutting a 5" square piece of burlap.
 

  



Fold the square in half from point to point, making a triangle.

 



Fold the triangle in half.


  


Fold the triangle in half again.


{Not too complicated so far...}

 

 


 With the closed end of the triangle pointed down and the open end up, cut the triangle into an "ice cream cone" shape.



 

{Does that look like an ice cream cone???}

Open the "ice cream cone" to see the flower...


 

Repeat this process with coordinating fabric.

 



For the rest of this project you will need...

 

small rubberbands

 

double sided mounting dots

&

 

a small, round "gem" or pretty much anything small & round!



NEXT... 

Stack the flowers face down on top of each other.  Attach one side of the sticky dot to the top of the gem and the other side of the dot to the flower.

 


Pull the fabric up around the gem and secure it with a rubber band.





Spread the flower out around the rubber band.

 


Hot glue twine around the center of the flower starting at the base of the rubber band.
  
The hot glue may melt the rubber band so work quickly!

 


Snip off the excess twine.

 
  



The End.

  35. cute! can you tell me where you got the red fabric and the blue fabric, i am trying to do my upstairs in those colors...

    ReplyDelete
  36. Mela,

    I believe all of the fabric was from Wal-mart...

    ReplyDelete
  37. So cute. Dang, my Walmart doesn't have a fabric section.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great flowers...but I think I am missing something. What is the gem for? Seems like it is really not necessary since the center of the flower is the twine wrapped around the rubberbanded center....
