Lace Crowns -- Quick Microwave Method

Lace Crowns -- Quick Microwave Method

Inspired by the popular lace crown tutorials circulating the blogosphere, I developed a speedier method using the microwave.  Using crochet lace, fabric stiffener, and metallic paints, you can create beautiful crowns in about an hour. 

You Will Need...

  • 1/2 yard crocheted lace*
  • Fabric Stiffener (I used Aleene's Stiffen Quick)
  • Small bowl
  • Tacky Glue
  • 1 sheet posterboard
  • scissors
  • clear packing tape
  • paper plate or parchment paper
  • thin butterknife or offset spatula
  • sewing pin
  • Gold or silver metallic paint**
  • Rubber gloves
  • Paint brush
  • Hot glue gun or a jewelry adhesive (I used Aleene's Platinum Bond Glass & Bead)
  • Vintage jewelry, rhinestones, jeweled scrapbook trim, etc...
Just a Tip!
