Burlap Rosette Tutorial

Hey Ya’ll! I hope you have had a fabulous day today! It is raining and cold here but I have really enjoyed being at home working on all of my goodies for Christmas! I am really digging the burlap right now. I told you yesterday that I would show you how to make these cute little burlap rosettes. This was one of those lovely accidents that turned out to be the best thing EVER! Well, maybe that’s exaggerating a “little” bit. I think right now the best thing EVER would be a tropical, kidless vacation or maybe winning the lottery:) But anyway, I am putting these little cuties on everything right now.

All you need for this is a scrap piece of burlap anywhere between 12-16 inches long and maybe about 3 inches wide. You can really play with this a lot..It doesn’t have to be exact. You can add length and width as you want too, making them smaller or larger.

The next thing you need to do is take one end and fold it over about a 1/2 inch and hot glue it closed. If you skip this step, when you gather your flower, your fiber will just pull right out.

You are then going work on the other end by snipping one fiber from somewhere in the center. Try and find one about a half inch in. You can see where I put my scissors in the picture.

After you snip it, you are going to work the fiber out so that you can grab it and pull. As you pull you will notice that it will start to gather. The more you gather the rounder it becomes. Make sure you don’t pull to hard! Keep working it until you have gathered all the way to the end.

I failed to get a picture of this step but after you have gathered to the end you will just hot glue the ends together forming a tight circle. Just play with it until you get the look that you want and hot glue it shut. That’s it! It is super super easy!


Here is a picture of how I wrapped a candle holder in burlap and then hot glued a rosette onto the center. Cute Huh?

One more order of business…. I want to start a linky party for those of you who are “restoring” beauties out there. It will be called “RE-STORE” it Wednesday. I will have a linky set up for the party and you will be able to showcase anything that you have refurbished and made new again. I will pick my top 3 favorites and showcase them the next week. Is there ANYONE, who would join me in this party?? I don’t want to be the only one…cause that would be just awful to party by yourself…Let me know in the comment box who’s in and I will set it up. We will start next week and do it every week! These little parties are a great way to get to know other bloggers!!Love ya’ll!!

I’ll be linking to:

  33. So sorry I am behind on email! I spread out the rosette to where I have a little bit of a flat surface to place the glue. Mine are round all the way around too. Once you glue it down it will fluff up nicely.

  37. I just used the utility burlap from Jo Ann's fabric. As long as you can see through it a little bit you should be fine.

    Do I have to have a website to link to your share-it parties? All I have is a FB page (juneBugs). The burlap flowers are really cute!

    I love this idea and have tried three but I’m stuck on connecting the ends. Mine just don’t look as circular as yours in the photos. Thoughts? Can you add a few more details for me? Jill – Muskoka, Ontario
