Wedding DIY: How To Make Lace Crowns
Who doesn’t want to be a princess? I would demand to be treated like a princess everyday if I could and to be honest, Mr T does a pretty good job of make me feel like one. Well I have taken wanting to be a princess to a whole new level and have only gone and created my own crown, made entirely of lace. Me and Jess had so much fun making these and pranced around in them pretty much all day!
Don’t you think that these would be great to make with kids too? Not that I have any but I was considering making them for my cats…
You will need: Lace ♥ Fabric Stiffener ♥ Scissors ♥ Fabric Glue ♥ Large tin or some sort of head sized tin to dry the crown on, (we used a cake stand but I later found a large coffee tin that would have worked way better) ♥ Plastic gloves
Step 1: Measure the circumference of the head then cut a length of lace the same size. We tried to follow the pattern of the lace however you can cut whatever crown shape you want, spiky, wavey, the choice is yours.
Step 2: Pour 3 or 4 caps of fabric stiffener into an old dish or tray
Step 3: Put on your gloves.
Step 4: soak the lace in the fabric stiffener ensuring all the fabric is covered.
Step 5: Peg the crown around the outside of your cake stand or tin and leave to dry (we left ours overnight).
Step 6: When dry, use fabric glue to secure the crown, use a paper clip to hold in place whilst the glue dries.
Step 7: Place on your head and act like a princess!
Personally I wanted a small little crown that I could place on the side of my head which I secured with pins, whereas Jess made hers to fit perfectly. What do you think, don’t we just make the perfect princesses 😀
