Burlap flowers can be added to stems, garlands, bows, favors, and pretty much every area of your rustic wedding! To create them simply cut a long strip of burlap and twist it at one end. Add a bit of glue to the twisted end and roll it in on itself. Add some more glue and keep twisting and rolling until your flower is the size you would like it to be. Finish by gluing the remaining strip to the side or bottom of the flower.
