Make flowers with burlap (bendable flowers)

It’s been a while since I last shared a tutorial at Craftionary

Today, I am going to share a technique to make burlap flowers  Make flowers with burlap that can bend and shape

You will need burlap, mod modge (or German white glue) and stem wire to complete this project


Let’s get started:

Burlap flowers are a great way to decorate at home  They can become a part of any color scheme

These handmade flowers are easy to add to any project

The bending and shaping ability makes them look natural

You will need:



Stem wire (or floral wire)  You can use colored wire for more fun!

Mod modge (I used German white glue in the tutorial)


Make It:

It will be best to work on a marble surface or a plastic table cover

With the help of a paint brush apply mod podge on the burlap  It will be preferable to use a big paint brush  It will quickly cover the entire piece 

Let it dry!

You can also use starch on burlap

The purpose of this step is to make burlap stiff

(If you are using German white glue  Add 1/2 cup water to 1 cup of glue to make the paste )

It has similar qualities to mod podge just thicker and cheaper to work with!

While you wait for the burlap to dry

Use that time into making petals (in leaf-like shape)  You can bend them into any shape you like

Now use mod podge or white glue to firmly press the petals on the burlap

Place books or something heavy on the top  Let it dry!


After 4 to 5 hours see if it’s all completely dry  Now simply cut the burlap around the petals

You now have petals to make wonderful flowers

Use them to decorate your projects


Make sure you have a tiny stem to each petal  You will need that stem to stick to any base

Let me share a few finished projects using these flowers
