Burlap Flower Tutorial

What You Need:

  • Burlap (you can use any color)
  • Wooden ball knobs (found at your local craft store)
  • Scissors
  • Card stock or cardboard for your stencil
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Pins - if you're using this on a towel cake

How to Make the Flower

The size of your template will determine how large your flowers will be.  Make your template from your card stock or cardboard and begin cutting out petals for your flower.  My flowers all had four petals each, which gave it a fuller feels.  Adding more will add more fullness to the flower.

Once all of your petals are cut out, begin gluing them one-by-one to your ball knob, forming them to the shape of the ball (some of the tutorials I read, they really shaped to the ball which made the flower have more depth).  Once the flower is to your "fullness fill" you are done!

You can use this flower for almost anything - from a wedding decoration to a headband piece.  Use them to your hearts desire!
