I am enjoying putting together my St. Patrick's Day mantel this year! As part of it, I made this fun and super easy doily garland.
Obviously I made this one in rainbow colors to go along with St. Patrick's Day but using different colors and paper styles you could make one of these for ANYTHING. Literally anything. A birthday, a wedding shower, a baby shower, a wedding reception... you get the point. Endless possibilities!
Here's a quick little how to:
STEP ONE: Get a package of doilies from the baking section of your nearest craft store. I got these 10" doilies at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 for 10 of them. Fold them in half.
STEP TWO: Cut circles out of your scrapbook paper of choice to fit into the centers of your doilies. Size depends on how big your doilies are. For my 10" doilies I cut 6" circles. Fold them in half.
STEP THREE: Fold them around some string or twine (I used green/white baker's twine) and secure with adhesive. You could also staple or use mini clothes pins to add some more embellishments as well.
And there you have it. So easy! And I love the look of it.
The rest of my mantel coming up!
