Transform this everyday item with antique and new lace.
You will need
• book that you want to decorate
• piece of lace fabric to cover the book
• remnants of lace, doilies, cord, and so on, for decoration
• silver paint
• modge podge
• fabric glue (the type that is clear when it dries)
1 Paint the book silver and leave to dry properly.
2 Cut a piece of lace to cover the book. Apply modge podge over the front and spine of the book then stick the lace in position. Leave to dry then cover the back in the same way. Leave to dry again then stick all the edges down on the inside of the cover – first do the front and when that is dry, the back.
3 Use the fabric glue to decorate the book with your trimmings.
