Fancy linens, watch out! Humble building paper goes haute couture when it's overlaid with Chantilly lace. For scalloped edges, cut carefully around the curvy design.
Tools and Materials
- Place paper (the darker the hue, the more pronounced the pattern) onto a piece of foam core. Position lace on top (use whole pieces for large endeavors like the runner; scraps work for smaller projects).
- Anchor lace and paper to foam core with Clover pins, which won't leave holes, spacing them every inch or so .
- In a well-ventilated area, spray the lace from 10 to 12 inches away with a coat of polyurethane. Let dry, about 10 minutes.
- Remove pins, and then gently peel back the lace from the paper. Once dry, the pattern is set for good.
