How to Make a Rickrack Brooch for Mother's Daycomments (15) May 6th, 2011
As I mentioned in my last how-to post, I recently came into a pretty sizable stash of jumbo rickrack—I'm talking six spools of it. This week's project is a quick and simple one, a pretty rickrack corsage for Mother's Day. You can use smaller rickrack for a more delicate effect, or try a grouping of these flowers to accessorize almost anything. They would also make cute gift toppers instead of bows.
- Length of rickrack with at least 12 points on the top edge (14 on the bottom edge)
- Needle and thread
- Felt circle (cut to size based on the size of your brooch)
- Pin back

The rickrack I'm working with was pretty thick and started to fray. It won't show in the finished flower, but if it bothers you, either tape the edges (again, they won't show) or brush some Fray Check over them before you cut your piece of rickrack.
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
