  • European lace
  • peach leather cord
  • brass hook
  • cardboard or thick paper
  • tea bags (optional)

Gather your tools and materials. You'll need scissors and a small piece of cardboard- a shoe box works perfectly. If you'd like to dye the lace grab a few tea bags as well.

If you'd like keep the lace white skip through to step 5. If you'd like to add a little color add a few teas bags to a pot of simmering water.

When the water is colored to your liking, turn off the burner. Add the lace and stir. The longer it sits in the tea bath the darker it will appear. We left ours in for 20 minutes.

Rinse the lace in warm water. Let dry completely.

Measure the cardboard to fit inside the gold end bars. Cut one for each end of the lace.

Add a thin layer of glue to the first cardboard strip.

Gently place the first cardboard strip, glue side down, onto edge of the lace.

Apply a thin layer of glue to the top of the cardboard strip.

Fold the lace and cardboard over once. This will make your ends thicker and sturdier for the gold bar end.

Lh11sm Pin-it%402x

Repeat the gluing and folding on the opposite end of the lace.

Lh12sm Pin-it%402x

Tie a double knot in the peach leather cord.

Lh13sm Pin-it%402x

Slip the leather loop into one of the end bars.

Lh15smw Pin-it%402x

Slide the lace into the gold bar end and press firmly and evenly to close it.

Lh16sm Pin-it%402x

Fold the second end bar over the remaining end of the lace.

So now for the fun part! Make a small hole and screw the brass hook into place.
