These burlap roses are easy craft projects that can be used to brighten up your room decor or add a homemade touch to any of your other DIY projects.
Paint a generous amount of Mod Podge onto a piece of burlap. Allow it to dry about 30 minutes or until completely dry and stiffened.
Choose one of the burlap flowers and cut a straight line between two of the petals to the center of the flower. Cut off the rounded part of the petal to the right of your center cut.
Apply hot glue to the triangle created by the cuts in the flower and press the back of the petal to the left of your cuts against the glue for about 30 seconds or until the glue is dry.
Cut out an entire petal all the way to the center and set it aside to use later as part of the center of the flower. Like the first flower, cut the rounded tip from the petal to the right of your other cuts.
Cut out two petals from the flower so that the piece removed is shaped like a heart. Set aside this piece for later. Again, cut the rounded tip from the petal to the right of your cuts on your third flower layer.
Use the two cuts from the flowers you set aside to create the center by scalloping the ends of each petal. Cut the tips off so that the center of the rose does not become too bulky.
Roll the larger petal loosely around itself to create the center of the rose and glue the end in place. Glue the smaller petal around the outside of the rolled petal to create a larger center for your rose.
Snip the ends from the second and third layers of the rose, keeping only the center of the bottom layer completely in tact. This will keep your rose from becoming too bulky. Use hot glue between each layer, allowing a couple of seconds for the glue to dry while assembling it.
Use your fingers to bend the ends away from the center of the rose. The Mod Podge you applied to stiffen the burlap will help keep it in place.
Now all that’s left to do is admire your homemade burlap rose or find some creative ways to integrate it with your other DIY projects and crafts!
