Photography Lace crown - How To

Don't you love all those little crowns you see for sale? So I love all things photo prop and I am always looking for other things to do on my own. This Wonderful project was inspired by belly beautiful portraits when she told me how easy it was. 


You can use any type of lace but you can buy shaped lace as pictured at most craft stores by the yard. I purchased a yard and was able to make seven of these crowns

Metallic acryllic paint

Paint brush or sponge

Fabric stiffener

Fabric glue or tacking

Cut lace to desired length, I trimmed my lace after the sixth point.

Spray with fabric stiffener as directed on bottle, It takes about an hour to dry

Then you can generously add paint to both sides of the crown and smooth with a  brush or sponge 

Allow paint to dry 

Align both ends of crown and secure with fabric glue

Voila!! super easy photography crown!
