Burlap Roses

As I mentioned in an earlier post my oldest son is getting married on October 13th. My future DIL has asked me to make the bouquets and boutonnieres for the wedding. She wants them done out of burlap, I thought no problem. WRONG!

Burlap may be popular right now but it is a pain in the patoutie to work with. It unravels and sheds like crazy. After much trial and error I think I'm getting flowers that look somewhat presentable.

Don't panic, these are just the flowers and I will be adding feathers and other fillers to make the bouquets look beautiful. I must admit looking at this picture making me nervous. I just have to remember they are suppose to look rustic.

Wish me luck, Ronda


  1. I'm glad it's you making those and not me, lol. It' sure doesn't looks easy. I've seen some tutorials on Pinterest. I wish you good luck Rhonda.

  2. Hi Ronda,
    Good luck with the roses. Burlap isn't really foldy stuff is it? I guess it depends how thick it is. Has Carla seen the roses? If so, did she like them? I think the two brown(?)ones look really good and the white one between them.
    Well, I hope you have fun trying to finish the project.
    Love, your brother

  3. Oh my goodness, what a job.
    You are off to a great start !
    It will be fun to bring it all together. ;)
