Good Morning, hope you are well! Exciting news first: my new blog is now up and running! Your invitation is on the side, would love it if you would follow along - open the invite and it will take you there!...
Today's tutorial is very fitting as it makes up part of the costume I am making for my daughter's birthday - Lace Crowns...
You will need:
Piece of wide Lace,
Fabric Stiffener (I was kindly sent some 'Stiffen Stuff' by my friend Debi),
Paint & Brush,
Glitter Glue and Jewels,
Glass Bottle or jar,
Take a piece of lace, (ones with a curvy top work best), and glue the ends together to make a circle...
Liberally spray your lace with the fabric stiffener and place onto a glass bottle or jar the same size to stiffen up...
When stiffened up, gently remove from glass (you may need to twist slightly to unstick it).
Lay on some paper and paint a pretty colour...
It may go a little floppy whilst the paint is wet, but it will stiffen right up again when the paint is dry.
Add a coating of glitter glue for some sparkle...
...Then stick on some pretty jewels
I made a tall, thin gold one too - which is my favourite! I used acrylic paint on the gold one, and I think it has dried harder, which makes it more sturdy.
Voilà - stunning Lace Crowns, perfect for any pretty Princess ;)
Hope you enjoyed that tute and don't forget to pop on over and join the party!
