Burlap - Glue Stick Holder

I am lovin' all the burlap crafts going on all over Pinterest right now. I bought a big roll this weekend at Michael's, but I wasn't sure how I was going to be using it -  I came up with something pretty quickly today - and it was needed, too. I have glue sticks all over the place in my sewing/craft room and decided I needed to have them all in one place. 

Any tall can will do if you use the large glue sticks. I happened to have a nice sturdy can that had wafer sticks in it. I just covered it with burlap - using hot glue to secure it. I doubled a piece for the center and glued it on. The little red flower added a nice touch. If I had some jute handy I would probably add a little to the center before gluing the flower on.
