DIY: Easy Doily Garland

I've been in a festive mood lately. With my sister's wedding coming up and my son's 2nd birthday soon after...so I've been making garlands! I also took this opportunity to add to my home decorating project by making a doily garland for my son's bedroom.

I still have a few different kinds I'd like to make. So many different creative ways to make them...you can play with color, texture (feathers, glitter), tools (glue, thread, punches, scissors), materials (paper, plastic, felt, cloth, tissue paper) and accessories (beads, crystals, leaves, straws, sticks).

Anyway, enough with the dreaming and on with the tutorial. Here's how I made the doily garland.

MATERIALS

:

Doilies

Ribbon

Kraft paper

I bought the doilies for $1.50 at the grocery store and the ribbon at the dollar store. The kraft paper I bought at Michael's.

TOOLS

:

Glass (to trace a circle)

Pencil

Scissors

1.

Cut the doilies in half.

2.

Trace circles on the kraft paper and cut then in half as well.

3.

Lightly glue your kraft paper half circles to your doily half circles.

4.

Sew all your pieces together onto the ribbon, or glue them.

You're all done! I find it adds a festive touch to a room or any special occasion. This is a super easy project and it's quick too. If you're ever stuck inside on a cold rainy day, this is definitely a project for you. :)

Have you made any garlands for your home?
