What You'll Need:

  • Crafter's Closet Precision Scissors
  • Crafter's Closet Burlap Ribbon
  • Crafter's Closet Jute
  • Shaker
  • Sand
  • Rubber Band
  • Fake Flowers
  • Crafter's Closet Hot Glue Gun

Let's Do This!

 

Step 1:

  1. Cut a section of flowers from the main bunch. The bunch should be approximately 10” high.
  2. Rubber band the bottom of the bunch together.

 

Step 2:

  1. Fill the shaker halfway with sand.
  2. Insert the bundled flowers into the sand.

 

Step 3:

  1. Cut a 24” length of jute and saturate it with watercolor. Let dry. Tip: Lay the jute on a plate to protect your work surface. Use a paintbrush loaded with color and dab it along the jute. Choose a color to match your flowers.

 

Step 4:

  1. Cut four 11” pieces of burlap ribbon (see inset photo). Hot glue the seams together to make one piece.

 

Step 5:

  1. Trim the length of the burlap piece to 10”. Cut off both raw edges to create crisp edges.
  2. Center the arrangement in the middle of the burlap piece.

 

Step 6:

  1. Fold the burlap up around the shaker, keeping seams and folds even.
  2. Tie the jute around the shaker to hold the burlap in place. Make a bow and trim off any excess length.
