I am always looking for ideas to make my Inspiration Wall (check it out here & here)
just a little more amazing!
I spend more of my waking hours looking at it than anything else in the world.
So it genuinely has to inspires me.
At the moment, I’m also on the lookout for some fun and
free inexpensive decorations to showcase at the Wedding Fair I am attending in a week.
(OMG – I only have one week left Arghhhh!)
So I have made one of the fastest garlands that I have ever made – it seriously took longer to photograph the tutorial than it did to Create the garlands
They’re SO quick and easy.
What You Need:
Step 1 – Most doilies will have an EVEN number of scallops on the edge, but it still helps to count
Step 2 – Decide where you would like to fold your doily – on the high or low point of a scallop
Step 3 – Using the scallops, line up all the edges and neatly fold the doily
Step 4 – Continue folding until all the doilies are complete
Step 5 – Tie a simple double knot in the end of your ribbon (do NOT measure and cut the ribbon at this stage) so you have a loop
Step 6 – Using your toothpick, put a thin line of glue along the centre fold and along ALL the edges of the doily
Step 7 – Place ribbon onto line of glue at the fold mark – ensure that the ribbon is FLAT with no twists in it
Step 8 – Gently fold over the doily and ensure that the edges all match and press FIRMLY with your hand so that all the surfaces/edges are adhered
Step 9 – Continue glueing and attaching doilies to the ribbon
Step 10 – Cut the ribbon with at least 10cm (4″) so that you can knot the end into a loop
If you make some of these whimsical Paper Doily Garlands
then it’s worth using doilies of various sizes.
The impact is huge!
So can you see these gorgeous little,
totally easy Paper Doilies in your home or at your celebrations?
If you do make some of your own I would love to see what you Create.
Just leave a link or photo in the Comments.
I would genuinely love to see your version.
