Rip 3-4 strips of fabric about 1- 1/2 inches wide.  You can make it wider if you are going to use it for a large surface.  I used this one for a flower pot so I didn’t need it too big.

Fold the strips in half then either sew or put a dab of glue on each end.

Then start twisting the fabric as you roll it, adding a dot of glue as you go to hold it in place.

Keep twisting as you go until you have the the size you want.  Glue the end to the flower then grab another strip and glue it on the flower and start twisting again.
