Don’t know if you guys have realized but making ornaments is one of my favorite things to do before the holidays! In this post, I’ll be showing how to make these burlap flower ornaments.
I just got a bunch of new crafting supplies from Amazon and am so excited. These little flower embellishments worked out great for some natural-looking floral ornaments.
Below I will give you step-by-step instructions of how to make these burlap ornaments with photos and where to get the supplies to make them.

What you will need:
- Flower Embellishments
- Crafting Tweezers (optional)
- Foam Balls
- Ball-head Pin
- Paint Brush
Step 1: Cut off about 6-8 inches of string, attach the string to the pin, and dip the pin into the adhesive so that it stays sturdily attached when you insert it into the foam ball.
Step 2: Begin by using the paint brush to apply a good-sized amount of glue to the back of the flowers. Make sure to spread the glue to the edges of the flower petals. I like to hold the flower down with the crafting tweezers, but it’s totally optional if you don’t mind getting glue on your fingers.
Step 3: Then begin attaching the flowers to the foam ball. *Some flowers will have to overlap in order to leave out any gaps. I try to add extra glue to the overlapping flowers to keep the ornament sturdy.
Step 4: Once all your flowers are glued on, all that’s left is to tie off the string. I suggested 6-8″ to give enough room to tie it off. I usually do a bow, but you could also do a regular knot. Make sure to add a little adhesive to the knot so that the string doesn’t come loose when you hang it.
Now your ornament is done! All that’s left is to wait for the glue to dry then it’s ready to be hung up.
