I recently coffee stained a lot of cheesecloth and I have been trying to find a few things to create out of it. There are so many things to do with cheesecloth but today we are going to make a flower.
The supplies I will be using are:
2. Hot glue
4. Bling embellishements
You can find cheesecloth in a variety of stores. I like to buy packages of it from Walmart. You can find cheesecloth table runners in a few different colors in Hobby Lobby.
My cheesecloth was white but I coffee stained it using instant coffee. You will find how I coffee stain items down below. I cut a strip of cheesecloth about 20 inches long. You can cut your cheesecloth as long as you want.
I then cut my cheesecloth in half. This will give me two strips 20 inches long. I folded one strip to be about an inch wide.
You might need to fold it a few times to get it about an inch wide.
You will then start to roll the strip of cheesecloth.
You can add hot glue here and there as you roll it. Once you get the center rolled you will then need to start to twist the cheesecloth as you roll it.
It is very important to twist it as you roll it. This is what will help to form it as a flower.
You will glue the end down in place.
I am using a piece of a green cheesecloth that I got from Hobby Lobby to create the look of leaves.
I folded the green strip in half and glued It to the back of the flower.
I glued a bling embellishment to the top of the flower.
I added a few strands of the green cheesecloth to hang down from the flower. These flowers can be created in a variety of sizes and colors. You can color your cheese cloth with paint, dye, or instant coffee.
I wanted to get creative so I made a few different flowers and glued them to a burlap canvas.
I added a wire twine as stems and made a bow out if the coffee stained cheesecloth.
I added a coffee stained hang to the bow.
These are very easy to create and you can add them to so many things. I hope you will get creative and give these a try.
