Lace Doily Bunting

100_3710
I have been collecting lacy doilies that are imperfect for this project, I haven’t spent more than 25 cents on any of them, some are new, some are old.

This would make great decorations for a wedding…

I used extra wide double fold bias tape…I buy mine on a 100 yard roll here.  It is very nice quality and very cheap.

All I did was cute the doilies in half, the squares I cut diagonally. The ones with big stains, I cut so the stained part was discarded.

I love how it turned out…I was a bit worried about the white bias tape and the shades of off-white doilies.

I am thinking this would look great in my bedroom…
I am linking to these great parties…

That is such a great banner idea. A great way to 'reuse' old/stale looking doilies in a totally usable today idea. Visiting from Motivate Me Monday at Keeping It Simple.

What a sweet idea, Ellen! I love this idea! I made some buntings from vintage handkerchiefs this winter. There's just something so adorable about vintage textiles! :)

What a wonderful idea!

I've just "inherited" a bunch of grandma's doilies and I've been waiting for a great idea just like this that I can use!
I'm going to use this, I think it would be great to use them to pretty up my craft fair booth!

Thanks for the great post!

I beyond love this! We have a ton of doilies from grandmothers that do not get used...but what a wonderful way to repurpose them and use them. I will be featuring this on Tickled Pink (yep, I am behind)
