Project Instructions

Measure and cut a piece of burlap into a 12" square. Make sure the burlap is big enough to cover a small bowl.

Wrap plastic wrap around the outside of a small bowl. Place the wrapped bowl on a surface covered with wax paper.

Place the piece of burlap into a large mixing bowl. Completely saturate the burlap with glue. Work the glue into the burlap with your hands. This will be messy! Wash your hands after this step.

Wrap the burlap around the bowl. Shape it to the bowl’s contour.

Use a rubber band to hold the burlap to the bowl. Remove the rubber band after an hour or so. The rubber band will help the burlap maintain its shape until the glue has hardened a bit.

If the burlap extends beyond the rim of the bowl, bend it and ruffle it to give the bowl an artistic appearance. You may need to cut the edge of the burlap to make it even all the way around.

After the burlap has dried, remove the bowl and the plastic wrap.

Fill the bowl with dried flowers, potpourri, or candy!
