Tutorial: Lace Hearts
You will need some lace, a heart shaped cookie cutter, Mod Podge, a paint brush, a needle and thread, and a pair of scissors.
Use a paint brush to spread a good layer of Mod Podge on the outer side of your cookie cutter.
Cover the mod-podged cookie cutter with lace as follows. Leaving a bit of extra lace at the beginning and starting at the heart’s bottom point, take your lace all the way around the cookie cutter to meet the other lace end.
Slather on a few more coats of Mod Podge. I recommend about 4 coats and let each dry in between. Once completely dry, carefully remove the lace by slipping a butter knife underneath it and working it off the cookie cutter. You may have to re-shape the heart a little by pinching the top inner point and rounding the curvy parts between your fingers, but that is easy. Then add string to make an ornament, or string it with several others to make a little garland, using a needle and thread.
Note: I think fabric stiffener would be a good alternative to Mod Podge to stiffen the lace and make these hearts. We didn’t have fabric stiffener, so we used what was on hand. If you do try it with fabric stiffener, let me know how it goes!
