DIY:Doily Garland

1. I cleaned and organized my craft shelf yesterday. It was a hot mess and I feel like a little weight has dropped off of me. It’s nice to walk by and think, “Wow…that looks good” instead of shuddering and hiding my eyes in fear and horror.

2. I made paper doily garland! It was simple and adorable. Seriously, if you can sew a straight line…this is the project for you.

I started with bias tape. I don’t generally have a need for bias tape, but for this project–bias tape is where it’s at.

I also used some paper doilies. You know, you’re not a southerner if these aren’t just hanging around your kitchen or craft shelf. : )

I folded each doily in half and stitched it to the bias tape.

And…that’s it! You can make this as long or short as you want. I used an entire pack of bias tape and spaced the doilies a few inches apart.

3. We have a winner for the April Giveaway! Lindsay Miller, get excited because this cute floral set is yours! I will be emailing you.

Happy Wednesday, friends! Thanks for being such great readers!

Enjoying the Good Life,



  1. Woo hoo!! Can’t wait to use my note cards!

    And speaking of organizing, my laundry area is so scary that I open the doors, quickly throw clothes in, and slam the doors shut before things start falling out. I see a serious Saturday morning project in my future….

  2. Adorable Kendra!! Love the contrast of the white against the dark!!

  4. You have got to be kidding me. This is fabulous!!! I love it so much!


  5. Something I should be doing today is organizing my laundry room, but instead I’m on my computer. And I’m glad I am because this is such a simple sweet garland. Love it! Now I know what to do with my paper dollies! Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday’s Best Par.tay!
