DIY Lace Paper Doily Chandeliers

When it comes to the queen of doily decorations and the Queen of weddings it has to be the paper doily chandelier of Martha Stewarts’.  Although technically not just made from doilies, the chandelier is a stunning statement piece and if you want to create your own following Martha’s how to guide.

Making garlands out of paper lace doilies is a super easy and cheap decoration idea. The simplest way is to use circle paper doilies, fold them in half and then glue them straddled over some decorative ribbon.  But don’t forget that doilies come in so many different shapes and sizes that be sure to fold, cut and bundle them together to create eye catching designs.

Doily Wrapping Paper and embellishment

I am a huge fan of over decorating presents and not just using shop brought bright coloured paper.  After all the whole unwrapping a present experience starts as soon as you give someone the gift.  There are a number of different ways that you can include Doilies in your wrapping goodie box and here are just a few.
