DIY Friday: Lace & Ribbon Flowers
I have been obsessed with making lace and ribbon flowers for about a month now. I found a post on making ribbon flowers and applied the same principals to making lace ones, and they turned out great--so great that we used them in our Inspired Creations Contest entry
. I think these are a great addition to a bouquet or as the focal point of a fascinator or headpiece. They can even be sewn onto a ring bearer pillow or flower girl basket. They could also be attached to a pin-back and pinned to a purse or dress as an added embellishment!
Here are the DIY instructions on how to make them. And be warned, once you've made one, you'll want to make a million of them! Its so fun and easy!
