Lace Flower Tutorial

I think the lace I used was a bit wide, it was 2.5 inches.  The next one I make will use smaller lace to create a denser flower, but it turned out fun and feminine none the less!


You will have to ignore the fact that I'm not wearing any make up today.  
What you need-
Felt 
Circle template
Two colors lace
Hot glue gun
Hair clip
Sparkle for center

Cut a circle from your felt between 2 and 3 inches in diameter.  Starting from the outside, work your way around and in with hot glue and the lace, gathering and bunching the lace as you go.



After a second loop around, switch colors and continue until full.

Glue a sparkly something or other into the center.
Attach a hair clip to the back side.  Which ever kind you prefer.  I used an extra bit of felt to secure it with hot glue.
Enjoy!

I also made this feather piece to wear to a wedding I have coming up.  I would have loved to show you the tutorial, but I purchased it off etsy.  You can find it here if your interested.
