How to Make a Lace Crown. No Crocheting Required!



If you're a photographer, I'm sure you've seen some those adorable newborn crowns.  

Here's a quick and easy way to make one.. no crocheting required.  

Made larger, these would make adorable party favors for a big girl party or maybe even for yourself. : )  Oh.. the possibilities!




                             
                   
                             


Here's how you do it..
  • You will need:
  • Mod Podge
  • A strip of lace (For a newborn, I used about 2 1/2 -3 inches of lace) 
  • Fabric Paint and Paint Brush (This is optional. You will need it only if you want to change the color of the lace.) 
  • Hot Glue Gun




1.  If you want your crown to be a different color then the lace, mix a bit of Mod Podge with your fabric paint.  I did about one part paint to one part Mod Podge.  Paint your lace.
If you are leaving your lace the color it is, simply paint Mod Podge onto your lace. 







2. Let dry until the paint is a tad sticky.  (You don't want it to be completely dry). 


3. Form a circle and hot glue the lace together; be sure to keep the lace pattern consistent. 


4. Let dry by placing the crown on a cup or something else circular.  






5. You're all done!




 Loves,
Amber
