Patriotic Denim-Burlap Flowers


Well, I had plenty of red, white, and blue fabric scraps left over.  Considering the season, I knew I needed to bust out these scraps and create something pretty with them!  I feel so frugal when doing a project with scrap fabric.  There have been so many cool flower tutorials out there, so I used some new techniques from a few to create some just plain purty patriotic flowers!

I bought a skinny wodden dowel and wrapped it with twine to create the "stems" for these flowers.  I made them all different lengths--variety is the spice of life! :)

I used all kinds of denim, burlap, and fabric scraps... a little twine... and some buttons.  My hot glue gun and I became friends, and with barely any burns, I layered up these little beauties!  

I secured these flowers into some styrofoam, and found a fun can that completely matched my colors and theme!  I am really wishing I had a yard or some outdoor area.  These would be so fun outside on a patio!!  Perfect for the Fourth of July!  Here are just a few more shots:

I love this project because it combines so many of my favorites... denim, burlap, flowers, and the 4th of July!!  And it matches my table runner perfectly!

PS Just after taking pictures, I found the perfect wooden tray to put the can on.  It's a lovely finishing touch!  Have a happy Monday, my friends!
