Burlap

Michael's has rolls of burlap in different sizes. I got an 18” width burlap garland for $12.99

We decided to use burlap so that we could roll the backdrop up for storage as well as take it on site or outdoors.

Garland Burlap 18 – $12.99

Duct Tape

1 roll – $3.89

Total Cost = $83.22

Directions

1. Separate the flower stems.
2. Roll out burlap garland.
3. Stick a flower stem through the burlap and tape (or glue with a glue gun) the stem to the back with a substantial piece of duct tape (we used tape so we could remove them or move them if needed).

4. Continue to stick the flower stems through the burlap, taping them to the back.
Alternate between the different flowers/colors to create a more organic array of blooms.
