Step-By-Step on How to Make Burlap Flowers
I’m guessing that you have already assembled the items you will use for this process, so let’s begin. In the first step, you need to get a strip and apply hot glue on it. Next, you want to make sure that it is one inch one end of the burlap strip.
Once you have attained the one-inch distance, you need to start folding the burlap’s edge onto the hot glue, then make sure that you are holding it down until it starts to dry. If you like, you can leave it for about five seconds or so to dry. If you don’t want to risk your fingers burning, make sure that you use a clothespin.
Now, you need to move that end (burlap strip) that wasn’t glued to the opposite direction. Next, you want to pull a thread located about a third to one side.
Once you start pulling, you need to continue pulling until you reach the other end with the glue. But hold on there. Can you see how it is beginning to curl naturally into the shape of a flower?
The next step is to secure the shape of your flower using hot glue.
At this point, you need to hold it until it starts to dry, then take it aside.
At stage 7, you need to include glitter to the pine cones. To the end of the pine cone, you need to apply the mod podge using a paintbrush.
Now, you need to secure the bottom by covering it (glittered pine cone) using hot glue. Once that is done, press the top of your burlap flower.
Hold your burlap flower in place. And Hurray! You have a handmade burlap flower that is simple, appealing, and inexpensive. So that’s it – as simple as that.
