Burlap roses are so pretty! Versatile as can be, they are great for decorating gifts, creating decor, adding a rustic touch to a bouquet or making a fun hair bow. But better than all of this, they are as easy as pie to make and can be created in a variety of sizes, all you have to do is change the length and/or the width of the strips and you have endless variety.

Things you’ll need:
Burlap fabric
Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Things to do:
1. Cut your burlap into strips. To start, aim for something roughly 3 inches wide and 24 inches long.

    It is gonna take some practice but I am getting the hang of it. Could you post a video I think it would be very helpful to me.

  2. Donna says:

    I love these and have wanted to make them rather than buy them. Does it matter if the burlap frays after its cut? Or how do you stop it? I like some fraying buy not so much that you cant see the flower!Love your site!!!

    • Great question Donna! Burlap by natural is a fringy type of material. You can check out our video on how to cut burlap for a more uniformed fray factorydirectcraft.com/factorydirectcraft_blog/video-cutting-burlap/. You could also try using Fray Check (factorydirectcraft.com/catalog/products/1302_2533_618-25012-dritz_fray_check_seam_sealer.html) to keep the loose threads from fraying before you start creating your rose. If you are still unsatisfied by the amount of fraying, you could also try using natural-colored linen material instead of burlap. I hope this helps you some, please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy crafting!
