Whose ready for Spring? Me Me Me! Let me introduce my first Spring-y DIY Burlap Canvas craft! I have a super quick video tutorial included also, I hope you enjoy this and if you are inspired to make your own, please tag me! I really would love to see what you create!
First gather your supplies
My son calls me a hoarder.
He may be right BUT it came into good use with this craft! The only item I purchased specifically for this craft was the burlap canvas (50% Off!). If you wish, you can also use scrap wood instead. Just an idea!
- Burlap canvases: I used the Master Touch Burlap Canvas 8″ x 16″ from Hobby Lobby.
- Your choice of faux flowers: I used a Apple Green Hydrangea flower head from Hobby Lobby and the “woody” stem of another flower cut up in 2-3 inch pieces and the leaves.
- Your choice of scrap lace and ribbons: I kept with neutral colors of white and beige
- Wire or floral cutters
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks

let’s get started
While the hot glue gun is warming up, I grabbed my hubby’s wire cutters and a woody looking stem from a second flower.
The flower stem from the green hydrangea did not have a wood stem for the look I wanted.
I cut the flower stems in 2-3″ pieces.
Don’t forget the leaves!
Cut the leaves and set them aside to repurpose also.
I narrowed down my choice of lace and ribbons to 3 styles I had on hand. These choices include burlap and white colors.
Don’t forget to pick which flower you want to use.
When you cut it from the stem. Leave 1/2″ to 1″ of the stem left.
We can trim the excess stem before we glue to the burlap canvas if needed.
For my flower head, I really struggled with which one to use!
The green hydrangea was my first choice, but I worried it would be too big for the project.
I also had a large pink carnation style flower head and two different blue flower heads to chose from.
In the end I went with my gut and I am thrilled that I did!
Lay everything down on the canvas and arranged the items in different ways to see which arrangement you prefer.
time to assemble!
First glue the lace and ribbons to the canvas banner.
For safety sake, I used my beat up scissors to press the ribbons and lace down where needed so I didn’t burn my fingers, again!
Next I started gluing the stems down. I didn’t butt the stems up next to each other, I did leave a small gap.
Next glue the leaves in place.
I didn’t glue them flat against the burlap canvas because I wanted dimension with this craft.
Finally it’s time for the flower head!
Be careful applying glue here also!
I laid some glue on the backside of the flower head.
Since there was no leaves on the back of my flower head, I also applied glue to the burlap canvas and then laid the flower down on it.
We have a unique Spring-y decor!
I love how this turned out!
I wish I had placed my flower head down a little more and made sure it was more centered!
Hazards or making this on FB live and upside down on my end!
