No-Sew DIY Burlap Roses
Burlap is so trendy in the fall, but I love using it (especially in these DIY burlap roses!) anytime of the year! They’re so practical and timeless.
If you’re using them in a wreath, just add different ribbons and secondary flowers for the season!
These are also beautiful in a mason jar – just add wire stems!

Here’s how easy it is to make DIY burlap roses:
*Gather your supplies:
*burlap ribbon 2-3″ wide (wider ribbon will make bigger roses)
*Next, cut a piece of burlap ribbon about 1 yard in length. If you want smaller roses, you can cut a shorter piece.
*Lay your piece of burlap ribbon out as shown in the photo below. That initial fold is important for starting your DIY burlap roses correctly.
*Starting from the right side, roll up the center of your rose tightly, as shown. You’ll stop rolling before you completely cover up the fold (see photo).
*Now – you’ll keep holding onto that roll with your right hand, and with your left hand, you’ll fold the burlap away from you.
*You’re going to just repeat these two steps (rolling, folding). Once your rose gets past the small stage, you can skip the “rolling” and just finish it off by folding away from you again and again.
Don’t overthink it – do what looks good! 🙂
*When you’ve used up the length of your burlap ribbon, you’ll need to secure your rose. Fold the end of the burlap over so it can’t be seen from the front.
I do this with 2 bobby pins in the back of the rose for a basic hold (perfect since burlap has holes in it!), and then hot glue to make sure it’s solid.
