Imitation = Flattery: Burlap Flowers

Burlap Flowers
The new kitchen re-do has inspired some additional crafts to add those "final touches".  I saw this cute post on Pinterest and loved them.  She gave great instructions picture by picture.  There is also a video but I didn't have to watch it as the pictures were good enough.  Since I already had burlap on hand, this craft was free.  And it only took about 20 minutes for 4 of them.  I made mine quite a bit larger since they were going on top of the fridge and I wanted to make sure they could be seen.

I cut mine about 3" wide and double the width of the burlap (I guess 36").  I also used pipe cleaner for the stems.  They went in a vase so you can't see them but it keeps them upright.

I did the vases a few years ago from an article in Martha Stewart about making mercury glass.  I don't really like them up close but they look good on top of the fridge.

  3. I know there will be lots of copycats for your everlasting burlap flowers. Very clever to use the pipe cleaners for stems.
