Lace: Timeless Beauty

I love lace. Love love love it. I have fancied it before it became popular or in fashion. I have adored it since people were calling it things like: "something my mom would wear" or "it looks like a doilie." I think you get the idea. Thanks to the royal wedding a few years ago, lace is back and more beautiful than ever. While part of me gets excited every time I see it, I also don't prefer the whole trendy and "in" idea surrounding it. Either way, lace is gorgeous and I wanted to explore a few different ways that you can use it. 

Since statement necklaces are ever popular right now, why not create one out of lace? You can use a piece of lace from an old garment or find some at your local discount fabric store. Cut to the desired size and length. Spray with fabric stiffener and add a chain to complete the look! This idea would be especially sweet using your mom's or grandma's wedding dress.

I may have to try to use a variation of this idea for my wedding since I can't stop starring at the beauty. Take a strip of lace, spray some adhesive and carefully line the bottom of a tea light holder or a pillar candle. It dresses up the entire look and gives it a whimsical ambiance.

This project was a bit more complicated and required a bit of help from my sewing expert mother. I found a beautiful dress and couldn't help but add a bit of lace to dress it up. We cut and pinned a piece of lace in the open area. My mom is currently attaching the lace to the back, leaving the bottom of the lace unsewn for easier movement and comfort. Tada!
