Are you looking for something different to put in your mason jar? These roses will never die and they are so unique! These look spectacular on wreaths, purses, pillows, necklaces, pendants for clothes, wedding bouquets, put on headbands with lace…LOTS of things!
A friend of mine had a country style wedding in a barn. They wrapped bottles, that went on the tables, with burlap and added a white burlap rose on top of the burlap. Then they put white and natural colored burlap roses in the bottles. She carried a really cool burlap rose bouquet and it was very tastefully done. She wore short white dress and cowboy boys. All the groomsmen wore cowboy boots too. Oh, and they had streamers of lace and then strips of burlap hanging from the ceiling!
Here’s how you make these:
Fold your burlap strip in half on one side, roll the burlap several times to create the center of the burlap rose, after you’ve rolled it a couple times, start twisting the burlap away from the center to start creating the petals. *when you start twisting, don’t fold the burlap in half anymore. only fold the strip in half for the center of the flower, then start to twist the burlap instead of rolling, keep twisting the burlap around and holding in place with your fingers. if you don’t like the shape it is creating, feel free to undo and restart. the burlap will hold up fine. Next, apply hot glue to the back of the burlap flower and apply the felt circle. make sure burlap is securely glued down. apply more glue in spots that need it and trim excess felt if needed. If you want to make bigger burlap flowers, just add more length to your burlap strip.
