DIY Burlap + Lace Hair Applique

So after making those darling burlap boutonnieres for all the groomsmen, I decided it was only fair to make something equally super duper cute for all the bridesmaids! So without further adieu, I present to you…burlap and lace hair appliqués!  


So cute, right?! I am going to give these to all the girls to add to their up-dos!

You Will Need: 


Cereal box-weight cardboard

2” lace trim

1” lace trim

Extra long bobby pins

Elmer’s Glue

Hot glue gun

Embroidery floss and needle 



Stiffen Stuff

Step 1: Trace and cut circles out of the cardboard, one per each applique. {I used a ½ measuring cup as a stencil}


Step 2: Trace and cut circles out of the burlap, one per each applique. {I used a ½ measuring cup as a stencil

Step 3: Glue burlap circles on top of cardboard circles and trim.

Step 4: Cut the 2″ lace into 12″ pieces.

Step 5: Thread the needle through the bottom of the lace.

Step 6: Starting from one end, gather the lace by gently pulling the thread

Step 7: Once you’ve pulled the thread tight, join the ends of the lace together and tie your knot in the thread. Cut excess thread. 

Step 8: Place a large drop of hot glue in the middle of the burlap circle.

Step 9: Press and hold flower on top of glue for a few seconds

 Now for the top layer..!

Step10:  Cut the 1″ lace into 6″ pieces. 


Step11: Repeat steps 5 – 7. Place a large drop of hot glue in the middle of the flower, and press and hold the second layer on top.

Step12: Add a drop of glue to the middle and place your button on top.

Step13: Once dry, flip your flower over and carefully glue your bobby pin to the cardboard. {Be careful not to use too much glue so you don’t glue your pin together!}
