The First DIY of Christmas: Doily Decorations

To kick off my 12 DIYs of Christmas series, I thought I'd start with an easy, quick, and gratifying project: doily decorations! This project involves very little hands-on time, and only a few supplies. Here's what you'll need.


Supplies

  • Doilies (as many as you want for project)
  • Ribbon or yarn
  • Tiny gold safety pins
  • Parchment paper
  • Spray starch or thinned Elmer's glue

Here's how to do it.

  1. Lay doilies flat on parchment paper. The parchment paper will not stick to the doily, which will allow you to easily peel it up, later.
  2. Either paint on the thinned glue mixture, using a light touch, or spray the starch on the doilies.
  3. Let dry. Then, flip over and apply starch or glue to other side.
  4. After the doily has dried, attach a small ribbon to a safety pin, and pin it to the stiff doily.
  5. Now, use your doily as a present, or hang it on your tree or from a wreath or garland. These look gorgeous when hung in multiples.
