What is Lace?
Lace is a highly-ornamental openwork fabric, which features a sophisticated mix of intricately-stitched patterns, usually of flowers and vines, that are interwoven by very fine threads, like linen, silk, or metallic cord. The delicate and feminine beauty of lace and how they channel the old-world charm, especially of the Renaissance Period, make them one of the most-loved and must-have fabrics in the world.
The elaborate threadwork of the very fine threads, however, makes lace a very delicate fabric, especially susceptible to rips and feathering, but modern techniques in lace-making have introduced the use of more durable threads, like cotton, which lace variety inevitably found their way on items of more frequent or practical use, like hand fans and everyday apparel, thus enabling modern fashionable citizens to enjoy the beauty of lace both in-between their ordinary lifestyle and on special occasions.

Materials: White lace, lace edging of any color, spray paint, embellishments, ribbons, scissors, glue, craft wire and plastic or wooden fans.Remove all the fabric present on the fans, leaving only the bare spines.
Color the spine with the golden or any brightly-hued spray paint.
Use the fabric that was removed from the fan in the form of a pattern and then cut the fabric in a desired shape.
Take the bare structure and spray-painted fans and then lay them on a flat surface equidistantly.
Apply glue with the help of glue gun to each of the spines and press the fabric and spread it over the spines till the fabric has covered the entire area.
To give a finishing touch, glue strips of lace edgings on the top of the fan and at the handle area.
