I stared buy DS taping the natural cotton lace around the top edge and then I used my hot glue gun sparingly around the top so that the top of the lace would create a nice soft edge and cover the wood a little.
I wanted some height in the middle, so I have padded the top with a bit of make up sponge and then I went a little crazy with the flowers. I have used the last of the pearl beads from my broken bracelet on this one (I have a feeling that another one may get broken soon) and have dotted them about to cover the gaps between flowers.
To finish off, I added some deep purple lace that I have had forever and lilac flat backed pearls. I think that I need to invest in some glimmer mist as I think that a bit of a gold sheen would have finished this one off nicely.
