Lace Rose


Making your own lace rose is surprisingly easy. I tried this on a whim and it turned out really well.


Ingredients:
  • A Roll of Lace
  • Button
  • Cute Beads
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Felt - a color that matches or is lighter than the lace because it will show through
 First cut out your circle of felt. Your flower will be a bit bigger than your felt circle so keep that in mind.


Next take your lace and trim the edge so it is rounded. This will make the edge less harsh.



After your glue gun heats up put a small line of hot glue on the edge of your felt and attach the trimmed edge of lace.


Continue along the edge of the circle until you come to the beginning again.


Now you are going to start to layer the lace and curl in toward the center.



You only have to go inward until the space in the middle can be covered by your button. Cut the end and round it like you did in the beginning.


Next put a big dollop of glue in the center and add your button.


 
Now turn it over. Add another round of lace to the edge of the back. This will hide the edge of the felt and make the flower look complete.



 Make sure you round the edge after cutting it.
Then put another dollop of glue on top of the button and add some cute beads. This adds detail and brings together the colors.

 
You can add a hair tie, pin, or head band to put it in your hair or use it as an embellishment on practically anything. Enjoy!
