I carefully wrapped a paper doily around my fingers to form a cone. Then using some of the double sided tape fasten down the open side of the cone.
I repeated the above step 15 times making sure that all of the openings were facing the same way.

This year my Vintage Doily Wreath has taken pride at the top of my Vintage Pram Tree. It could also be used as a wreath on the wall or on your front door.
For an extra bit Christmas touch you could always dip the edges of the cones into some glue and then glitter to give it a bit of bling!

#2 Vintage Doily Bows

Supplies needed:

  • Paper Doilies – I used 14cm wide doilies
  • Jute
This had to be one of the quickest crafts I’ve made in ages and the end result was so sweet!!
I started by folding the doily backwards and forwards to give it a fan effect.
Then using a piece of jute cut into about 12cm long, I wrapped around the centre of the doily and then tied a bow to secure.

Fold the doilies in half. I used 18 doilies for this garland so that it would fit around my 7ft tree.
Now for the stamping!
Using your different stamps, stamp away on one side of the folded doilies.

To ensure I had the right length of jute I wrapped it around the tree as though it was the garland and cut it to measure.
Or if you already have a garland that you have used before use that as a guide for measurement.
Slot the doilies over the piece of jute so that they hang and leave about a 15cm gap between each, attaching each doily with some double sided tape on the inside to secure in place along the way.
