See It Again Saturday: Little Lace Flower

If you missed the Field Trip this week at A Few of My Favorite Things this is what we did:
Little Lace Flower 

What you'll need:
Lace Trim - Felt - Glue Gun

Step One: Trace and cut two circles out of your felt.

Step Two: Apply a thin bead of glue to the outside of your felt circle.

Step Three: Stick the inside edge of your lace trim to the glue.

Step Four: Continue steps 2&3 in small increments. 
(I used an old thimble to prevent burning my fingers on the hot glue.)

Step Five: When you get to the center just cut your trim and glue end down.

Optional Steps: Now you can either leave the lace flower as is or embellish the center:
(I found these adorable brads at Target)

You will want to make a pilot hole with your craft knife, then add your brad.

Now you have a cute little lace flower!
Isn't she pretty! You can use this so many different ways!
I choose to put it on a large bobby pin.
(When I make soft headbands I sew the elastic with a long overlap and opening so I can slide these puppies right in!)

To secure to the bobby pin slide you 2nd piece on felt through the center.

Now glue your lace flower on top!
Tada! I love the vintage feel & can't wait to wear it!

I saw lace for 50% off at Hobby Lobby yesterday and was tempted to make this, but then found myself paralyzed by indecision. What color of lace? Can I pull off a lacy flower accessory? It is adorable!

Desiree said...

Thank you for the post....I purchased tons of lace at a closeout. Now I know what to do with some of it.

Rambling Housewife said...

This is so so so pretty. I always find myself "inheriting", more like accumulating, vintage fabric and lace from my grandmas, and this would be the perfect gift to give back to them for their kindness of letting me scavenge through their stuff!! Thank You:)

How cute are you! I found this on pinterest and just love it. Can't wait to make one for myself!

a fortunate gal said...

Sooo cute! I've made these before but not with brads. What a great idea and it gives such an easy vintage look. Question: where do you get your bobby pins? They seem so much easier to glue flowers onto. Great job!

Danielle said...

Adorable!!

Tora´s Vintage Dream said...

Thanks for this tut, I love it and am sure going to make one :)

Natalie said...

Where can I find the large bobby pins at?

Tami said...

Also, am I the only who needa a little help on the actual flower making part, HELP!!

I love these! I looked all over for vintage flower tutorials a year ago and ended up resorting to designing my own: http://www.livinginlilliput.com/2012/03/lace-rose-tutorial.html
I'm excited to try a few of these too! Thanks! Oh, and if you have a second to check out the pics on my blog, I clustered the flowers in different sizes on headbands and barrettes - and used pearls as centers - LOVE your antique-looking brads for a more casual feel! So many uses to these fun vintage lace flowers!

Amy said...

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Some times things created artificially appeal more than the Natural ones. Your floral designs are just like that, Colors full of variety and finishing at its extreme.
