Vintage Inspired Layered Lace Flowers

Don't you just love the vintage look? I adore all things antique, lacy and lovely; this flower I'm going to show you how to make is all of those things! You'll see why I love it so much! Simply beautiful and the uses for it are endless! Add a pin and make it into a corsage, add it to your handbag or a cushion, make a whole lot of them and make them into a decorative floral display for the coffee table, or just pop it on a headband for a lovely wedding hair piece!

What you will need:
3 x 1/2 metre long lengths of lace
Needle and thread
Button for centre
Some plastic pearl beads
Glue gun

 Lay each piece of lace on top of the other with the straight edges aligned (And excuse my lack of lovely fingernails!)

Take your need and thread and do a running stitch along the straight edge, gently tugging the thread as you go so that the lace gathers.

Continue all the way to the end of the lace length, continually tugging to gather the lace. Pull the thread tightly and stitch the two ends closed to complete your flower.  Pop a knot on the back of the flower to hold the stitching.

Glue your button in the centre of the flower

Glue your pearl beads around the outside edge of your centre button and you're done!


  1. That is so cute! I'm going to have to make some for my girls!
