Leftover Lace Rosette Broaches for Mother’s Day

This post may contain affiliate links, please checkout my disclosures page for more info.  Thanks!

Here’s a special craft project and a great idea for a quick and pretty gift for Mother’s Day.

Two broaches made from scraps of pretty lace.  One has a bow and pearl center, the other has a cameo.

Rosette broaches.

They are so very pretty and fun to make. I’ve made multiple versions before. 

All it takes is a bit of lace, maybe some felt, glue (like the Aleene’s Jewel-it I used), pin backs, and some embellishments.

If you look carefully, you should see that I used some of the lace leftover from one of my blouse makeovers.  That’s what I love about this, you can use up scraps and bits easily.

The first broach was inspired by my old button broach tutorial.  For that one I used a cameo style button I got at SAS. 

For this broach however, I used the other cameo from one of those sets of earrings I made-over (see Jewelry Makeover: Turning Earrings into Cute Necklaces).

So the one pair of earrings produced and cameo necklace and a matching broach.  However, I’m just going to give this away, it’s the perfect gift for Mother’s Day.

Since I had more leftover lace and all my supplies were out, I whipped up this second broach.  For decoration, I used a ribbon bow (made from leftover ribbon) and a flat back pearl.  It’s simple and it works.

Both of these pins were finished on the back with a felt circle to cover the raw edge of the lace, just like in my applique lace rosette broach tutorial.

If you want to whip up a few of these to give to your loved ones (or to add to your wardrobe), be sure to check out my tutorials.

Here’s the updated list:

Six down, four more to go.  The next one will be up next week, and will be super cute!  Look forward to it.
