Burlap is so plain and simple yet versatile, like a good pair of jeans. You can dress it up or tone it down by pairing it with different craft supplies. With this project, I used colorful red burlap and added a little bling to make a pretty centerpiece for the holidays.

- Syrofoam ball
Step one: Cut the burlap into three inch squares.
Step two: Fold the burlap square in half twice. Hold the folded corner and trim the edges off.
Step three: Wrap the styrofoam ball with burlap and place it in the pail.
Step four: Layer two flowers together, and pin them onto the styrofoam ball.
Step five: Glue a rhinestone to the center of each flower.
I embellished my pail a bit by adding a mini Santa ornament to the front of it. I love this red burlap, and the color is what inspired me to make poinsettias. If you want to make this centerpiece for Thanksgiving, you could use natural burlap instead, like I did with the centerpiece pictured below. This is such a quick, inexpensive project that you could easily make them in lots of colors, and just swap out the burlap flowers as the seasons change!
