I was recently searching on the web and stumbled on this oh so cool burlap flower. It is OLD SCHOOL because it came from Aleene, the glue lady, and was originally published in the sixties. There is a YouTube video here. This is how I made mine... I cut washed burlap, about a foot long by about 4 inches wide.
(I had the washed burlap, but unwashed burlap would work as well.)
Run a bead of glue, (I did use Aleene's) along the length of the burlap close to the edges on both sides and let dry completely. In the video they show you to work the glue into the fibers with a piece of cardboard, and this worked great.
Hope you enjoy these, and send me a photo if you make some, I'd love to see what you make! Have a great day my friends.
