What you need:

glue gun
needle and thread

Measure your lace trim around your leg  just above your knee. Make sure that it’ll be tight enough so that it wont slip off.

Thread your needle and tie a knot on the end.  Now take your loose ends of lace and face the good sides together. Start sewing tiny little stitches from the top to bottom.

If you’re not up to making your own flowers, check out your local craft store, fabric store or Etsy.
(p.s. I’m hoping to have an Etsy store soon!)

o now, grab your glue gun and add a dab of glue right where you just sewed. The pretty side of lace should be facing out and thats where you would want your flower to go.

Press it down for a few seconds so the glue will set.
