This burlap rose is simple and easy to make, but it looks beautiful. You can use regular burlap if you want, but I chose to use jute webbing for my roses. You can also attach them to wire or other stems, or use them in other ways to decorate.
Here is a video tutorial and you can read below for written instructions:
Step 1: Gather your supplies. You will need:
- jute webbing
- hot glue gun
- paint or permanent markers (optional)
Step 2: Cut a strip of webbing about 18 inches long. Then, cut that strip into 1/3’s. If you’d like, decorate the webbing with the markers. I chose to do a line of yellow and orange along the black part of the webbing, on opposite sides.
Step 3: Fold one end in, about .025 inches, and glue down.
Step 4: Fold the jute webbing toward you.
Step 5: Roll the center onto the folded piece.
Step 6: Fold strip away from you and continue rolling. From there, build up your center by alternating folding the strip away from you and toward you. Be sure to secure it often from the bottom using your hot glue gun.
Step 7: Once the center is built up, you can begin rolling the strip only away from you. Tilt it away from the center as you glue it in place for a wider flower.
Step 8: Tuck the last little piece beneath and glue it to the bottom.
And you’re done! It took me about 5 minutes to make each of these flowers, and they’re a great addition to any rustic bouquet, whether you’re carrying it down the aisle or putting it in the center of a table.
