Doilie Garland in three steps and for less than $5, I promise

So, I have a confession to make... I love doilies. Call me an old lady, but I can't get enough of them whether they are beneath my tea cup, part of a Valentine, decoration or even the doilie collars that Sandra Day O'Connor used to wear. They are so feminine and sweet. Here is how you make doilie garland for less than $5 in three steps.

Must have materials and tools:

20 Paper dollies – These can be found at many stores, I found mine at Smart and Final

4 yards of string or ribbon – I used Martha Stewart holiday baker’s twine

Hot glue gun and glue sticks, but Elmer's glue works equally well

1.Fold desired number of doilies in half

2.Place string in the center of folded doilie along crease, and secure
with adhesive. I used string, but any ribbon will do. I also used a
hot glue gun, but Tacky or Elmer's glu
e is just as good.

3. Continue the process until you are happy with it.


This is my garland mixed with hearts for Valentine's Day
