DIY: Simple Lace Crowns

Written by Sara Albers and Melissa Fenlon of Alice & Lois

This pretty lace crown is the perfect summer craft for all the ladies in your life. They’d be great for a summer garden party with your girlfriends or your daughter’s birthday celebration. All you need are a few supplies—lace trim and fabric stiffener—and you’re ready to make a pretty crown. We kept ours white but you could also use gold or silver paint to add some shimmer. Another idea: a craft station at your next gathering where guests can customize their own lace crowns with ribbon, flowers, and paint!

Supplies:
• Lace trim
• Fabric stiffener (from your local fabric or craft store)
• Craft glue
• Scissors
• Paint and ribbon (optional)

Steps:

1. Measure the circumference of your head (our crowns averaged 24 inches). Apply the fabric stiffener according to packaging; we applied with a foam brush.

2. Lay the piece flat on wax paper and let dry for a few hours.

3. Apply quick-dry craft glue to attach the ends together.

4. Use binder clips to allow crown to fully dry and hold its shape.
