12 Days of Christmas Crafts - Day 8

Ric rac is just one of those things. It's down home, girly, and classic all at the same time. And it comes in just about every color of the rainbow.

Time to share another quick craft a la Martha, for little girls and big girls alike. I found the instructions in an old copy of Martha Stewart Kids magazine, unfortunately out-of-print:

The raw materials:

Ric rac in different colors, sizes and textures
Love the texture of the white ric rac
I like the traditional texture, too
Milliner's flowers

Stitch the ric rac carefully into a circle and join (tuck the raw ends and glue carefully).

The stitching doesn't have to be perfect
Top side of the unfinished flower
Make multiples of different sizes and colors.

Remove the stamen from the milliner's flowers and glue into the center of ric rac circle.

Use the finished flowers on ballet flats, hair clips, hair band, or sew onto sweaters or other clothing.

Very cute and so easy to make!
