A white lace flower is classy and will dress up any project. But there's lots of different colors and types of lace. Get creative and make it your own.

Supplies needed for lace flowers

These lace flowers are really easy to make and you only need a few supplies.
  • lace
  • hot glue
  • button
  • I used 1 1/2 inch wide crochet lace, but you can try other types and varieties of lace for different looks. You will need about 10-12 inches of lace.

    Steps to Making Lace Flowers

    I've written the instructions step-by-step for you. Use this collage with the corresponding step to visualize what the instructions say.

    Step 1 - Grab your supplies. I always say use what you have if possible. You will need lace (I ended up using the 1 1/2" lace, about 10" long), a button, and hot glue.

    Step 2 - Place hot glue on the short edge of the lace and fold it under.

    Step 3 - Fold a small piece at the bottom of the ribbon and secure with hot glue.

    Step 4 - Continue with step 3 over and over until you've created a flower.

    Step 5 - Fold under the lace and hot glue so there are not raw edges.

    Step 6 - Overlap slightly where the two ends meet and hot glue in place.

    Step 7 - Hot glue a button in the center.

    Now embellish your craft! I added mine to this twine wrapped bottle.

    You may also enjoy making fabric flowers. It's another fun way to embellish your craft projects.
