Jute Twine Flowers

I made these fast and easy jute twine flowers today.

They can be used for multitude of things like wreaths, gift wrapping and scrapbook embellishments, bunting and more. I made a strand of them to hang on the long narrow window beside my front door. I hung them on this post at the stairway because the sunlight in the foyer wasn't suitable to take a photo.

The tutorial to make these flowers can be found here.

Edit: I did change one thing from the tutorial to make these. Instead of cutting out circles from cardboard and futzing with her more involved technique, I simply cut a circle out of foam (I used an old flip flop because that's what I had and it's -32 C and I wasn't about to go out and find something else) and eyeballed where the straight pins go instead of being all precise with a ruler and compass and all that noise. Either way will give you the same results, but I promise you - my way is going to save you a mad amount of time.

Very pretty! I actually like yours better than the more colorful ones in the original tutorial.

Thanks. Yeah, I actually prefer things to be very plain and in earth tones, but I can also see doing these with flowers with embroidery thread in vibrant colours for gift wrapping.
