DIY Lace Crowns
I purchased a 9ft roll of lace trim at Hobby Lobby for $2.99 (and it was half off). The trim was gathered on the roll, but I trimmed off the bottom seam to ungather it, which ended up giving me an extra 5 inches on the 14 inch section I cut off, so you could get about 12 crowns off one roll of trim. Pretty great deal.
Here is how I did it...
Embellish as you wish. I cut petals from satin, burnt the edges, sewed them in the style of a peony and put a pearl charm in the center. As you can see in the picture, I also applied a pink pearl trim. I attemped to glue it the first time but ended up cutting it off and sewing the strand on. I didn't like the look of the glue on the bottom of the crown.
