Lace Hair Flowers

I've been loving the look of lace flowers lately, so I thought I would do a quick little tutorial on how to make a lace hair flower.  The first step is to take your lace and sew a basting stitch (the longest stitch) along the edge of the lace.
Then you want to take the flat thread and hold on to it and pull the lace over to scrunch it up.
Next cut out a circle out of some felt
Now starting in the middle put a hot glue dot down and attach the end of the lace. Now take the lace and wrap it around the end piece, gluing as you go.
Once you finish wrapping it, fluff it up to make a poof or you can flatten it down and glue some beads or a cute flower in the center.  Then you want to attach it to a hair clip. I usually use ribbon and just glue it right to the clip, but I recently saw an idea on V and Co. to make them interchangeable and did that instead. You can do whichever way you prefer, and can find that tutorial here. Here are a few of my finished project. I love them, they are so girly! (Sorry, I have failed to perfect the "myspace pic". Bummer I know).

Make sure that you check out the linky parties here!
