Step One

Cut out an assortment of shapes from your lace e.g flowers, leaves etc. Spray your pieces with stiffen stuff or dip in watered down PVA glue and leave them to dry for a couple of hours.


Step Two

Arrange your lace pieces in a design you are happy with and glue or stitch them in place to hold them together.


Step Three

With approx. 40cm's of 0.25 wire prepare the flowers with a potato pearl in the centre.


Step Four

Glue or stitch your main lace focal piece together and attach to the headband.


Step Five

Attach the flowers by wrapping the ends around the headband on both sides of the flower.


Step Six

Use the length of wire left from attaching the flowers to add Keshi pearls to fill in between the flowers on the headband and across the lace focal point by wrapping the wire a couple of times around the headband as you go.


Step Seven

Secure ends of the wire and cut off at the front of the headband so that no sharp ends get stuck in the hair while wearing.
