Creating Smiles Day 2: Live.Love.Craft

Hi guys! I’m Alyssa from Live. Love. Craft. And I’m stoked to be part of Creating Smiles week here at HannahHandmade! I’m so honored that Hannah asked me to join!

Today I’m going to show you how to make a flower out of Lace trim. You can use it for headbands, hairclips, pins, really anything!
{this is the trim I used, I got it at the thrift store for $0.25!}

Cut a circle of felt a little bit smaller than you want your flower to be. Start hot gluing the lace onto the felt, pleating it every now and then.

Keep going around until you reach the center.
Take the trim that’s hanging off and twist it a little. Glue it down in the middle.
You can put buttons, beads, whatever you want in the middle. I chose to use these little rhinestone thingies.

You will probably notice the square end from where you started just sitting there looking awkward.  To fix it, put a blob of glue on the back and then fold and stick the square end in the glue. Wow… sorry… I didn’t know how to say that! Does that make sense?
Now all you have to do is attach it to a pin or whatever and you’re done! Easy peasy and SUPER cheap!
