Easy Burlap Flowers Without Sewing

10 Minutes
I am sewing challenged, so I used hot glue to make these easy burlap flowers. I've tried several other techniques, but this is my favorite one because it looks so good and it's so easy!
I wanted medium sized flowers about 2-3" in diameter, so I used a 12 inch section of 2.5 inch wide burlap ribbon. You could cut strips from a large piece of burlap, but I think it might fray a lot. If you want that look, then go for it.
Turn over the edge and hot glue. Use a pencil eraser or something else to hold the edge while the glue dries.
Then take one strand from the middle and pull it out. Keep pulling it while the ribbon scrunches up. I started from the top and then went to the bottom and kinda worked it all over.
When it's scrunched up the way you like it, attach the top and bottom together with glue. Be careful because the glue seeps through the burlap.
Let the glue dry, and you have an easy burlap flower! Once i made a few, they only took a few minutes to make.
