How to make a burlap-wrapped vase

Fresh flowers are one of the easiest way to create a cheerful atmosphere in your home, but you need a way to display them. There's nothing wrong with a plain glass vase, but this burlap-wrapped vase is much nicer.
This project only takes a few minutes to make, so there's no excuse not to try it. Check out the video tutorial and read through the instructions below if you want to learn how to make your own. If you don't have a decorative key you can substitute another small item to create that bit of glam.

Instructions
1. Cut a piece of burlap big enough to wrap around the entire vase.
2. Line up one end of the burlap with the top of the vase and hot glue it in place, making a line of glue all the way from the top of the vase to the bottom.
3. Wrap the burlap around the vase, securing it with hot glue in several places along the top.
4. When the vase is entirely covered, secure the burlap by hot gluing it all the way from the top to the bottom.
5. Trim off any excess burlap along the seam.
6. Hot glue the end of a piece of jute string to the middle of the vase and wrap it around the vase several times. Secure the other end of the string with hot glue as well.
7. Hot glue a tiny decorative key to the string. Wait until it's dry to fill the vase with beautiful fresh flowers.
