Burlap Flowers

These flowers are so easy to make and add a little something fun to your fall projects. I had a TON of burlap laying around and decided we needed to feature these flowers in a few projects. We will be linking back to this post in the future as we use these in several fun DIY crafts!

For these flowers you will need:

  • Burlap (each flower is a strip of burlap about 15 inches long and 3 inches wide)
  • Thread
  • Needle
