Burlap Rose

For this project you will need:

Wired Burlap Ribbon, 4″ – I got mine at Michael’s, it’s $9.99 for a 7 yd roll. (Don’t forget your coupon) I don’t think I even used a full yard for one flower so one roll should make at least 7 flowers. It comes in many colors too so just think of the fun you could have?

Twine

Yarn needle

Scissors

Step 1

Cut the end and fold in the raw edge just like we did in the center, tucking in the raw edge as you sew along to hide it.

Knot your ends and weave them in before cutting them off or use the twine ends to attach the flower to your craft project. Enjoy!
