Doily Bunting
Doilies remind me of my childhood summers spent at my great grandmother’s house. I still remember exactly what her house smelled like, a mix between a floral fragrance and moth balls. I remember her collection of dainty nick-knacks sitting on delicate hand crocheted doilies, like snapshots in my memory. Making this doily bunting brought back memories of her, even if my doilies are the store bought paper ones. Maybe someday I’ll learn how to make the real ones, but in the meantime this will do. I think it matches my felt ruffle wreath perfectly. Happy Valentine’s Day!


Paper Doilies
Hemp or String

Step 1: Fold paper doilies in half, making sure the ends match up.

Step 2: Measure your doorway (or wherever you plan on hanging the bunting) and cut a string a few feet longer than your measurement, allowing hanging room. Glue the piece of string, sandwiched in between the dollies. Continue gluing doilies on the string until you’ve reached your desired length.

Step 3: Cut hearts out of the felt or many craft stores sell felt heart stickers ready to go. Stick the felt to the middle of the halved doilies on the string.
