DIY: Crochet Lace Necklace

lace drying flat
Lay your lace flat on a surface that won’t stick to the lace, like a plastic lid or a plate. I used a plastic lid that I was about to recycle. Once it’s flat, dab the excess glue from holes and in between the mesh with a small rag. If you don’t, you’ll just have one piece of fabric without the intricate lace design when it dries. That wouldn’t be cool.

  1. When I read this, I had two thoughts: my wedding gown is all lace. Even though I’m divorced, I love the lace and just can’t throw it out: Now I can do lots of things…head-band, enhance the lace with tiny pearls, crystals, sequins (but not too much). Maybe a brooch( add a fabric back and stuffing and/or stiff facing fabric), I can think of at least 10 other things to make! My second thought/memory: in my first year of Nursing School, we wore “Probie Caps”–we were given a rectangular piece of linen with a “probie” blue band on it. We’d soak it in starch and water and paste it to the mirror in our room. When dry, peel it off glass and fold and straight-pin it into the assigned shape! After our first year, we traded it in for the official cap of the school of nursing I attended and graduted from!
