These are so easy y'all. Yea, Rachel, I said y'all. Again, I've been seeing these all over Pinterest and have been keeping them in the back of my mind so I could make one for Winnie for her 1st birthday - which, ya know, is in August - which I'm already planning. DON'T JUDGE ME.
lace (tons of different styles at your craft/fabric store)
Fabric Stiffener (although I'm determined Elmer's glue would work just fine...)
Glitter Mod Podge
Cut your lace to the desired length - You can make tiny little Alice in Wonderland style crowns,
or fitted crowns, whatever you want
|This is what the lace looks like before you use the Stiffy..hehehe|
You want to paint your lace (if you are going to) BEFORE you use the stiffener/glue. I made that mistake. I stiffened the lace first, then painted it and since the paints are water based the lace lost its
stiff-ness. So. Paint, then stiffen! Let the stiffener dry really well before you you shape it into the crown. I also added glitter Mod Podge on to my crown, because why not?! That's why.
Glitter is always necessary.
Now take your fabric glue and glue your lace into a circle (it dries almost instantly) Just line up the patten in the lace from one side to the other.
And now you have made a lace crown! wwweeeeeeee!
And tomorrow is my 28th birthday, so I will be wearing one all day.
because I can.
and it's my birthday.
and it's pretty.
