Bright Idea: Decorating with Doilies

Let's talk doilies! These babies aren't just for your grandma anymore. I did a little searching and found a ton of ways to use them. Here are a few of my favorites...

I love both of these doily garlands. The first garland is very simple... you can make something similar by folding paper doilies over twine. The second garland definitely takes a little more effort. Check out the DIY here.

I found these doily pom poms on Etsy. The colors are great!

This doily lamp is definitely on my huge list of crafts to try. I found a great DIY here.

Use them to spruce up some brown paper packaging!

Throwing a party? Here are two great ways to add some detail to your table setting. Dress up bottles or cups by wrapping paper doilies around them and securing them with twine. Take it to the next level by making your very own doily cupcake holders. Check out the DIY here.

Last but definitely not least, I found a fantastic doily envelope DIY here. This envelope wrapped around a greeting card is the perfect way to add a little something to a gift!


  1. The picture at the top is beautiful! Love that. I want to throw a party asap and hang those garlands everywhere :)

  2. I love that one too, Jennifer... and it seems so simple!
