Dress up your home with these beautiful burlap roses! They are SUPER easy and inexpensive to make on your own!

I've had several friends ask me for some help in making these burlap roses that I've become obsessed over lately so I thought a tutorial would be appropriate. Until I tried it I had no idea how easy they were to make, so now I'm kicking myself for not trying it sooner and you will be too!

Materials:
-burlap garland (not wired, in the color of your choice)
-hot glue gun with glue sticks
-craft felt in the same color as your burlap
-scissors

Step 1:
Cut a 2-3' strip (just experiment with the length each time you make one to see what size you prefer).

Now to make the petals...the fun part! Take the strip and start twisting it away from your center (you will not need to keep the strip folded at this point).
