DIY Burlap Fabric Roses

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.

2. Fold the end of the strip in half and roll the first three inches tightly, secure with a drop of glue.

3. Loosely twist the remaining tail of burlap away from the rolled section.

4. As you twist, glue the twisted section around and around the center to create the rose.
5. When you get to the end, tuck the tail under the flower and glue in place.

  1. 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. 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!!!

    1. 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 You could also try using Fray Check ( 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!
