Doily Garland

Yay, a little project that i'm going to try out on the weekend.... (thanks to Martha Stewart...shhhhhh). Care to join me?

1. Go out for a delicious brunch, and on your way home stop by some $2 shops (intouch imports on Smith St is a personal favorite of mine!) and secure yourself a lovely big bunch of round doily's. If you'd prefer to do all of your shopping in the comfort of your warm home, these gorgeous hand dyed pretties are available from PrettieParties here.

2. Fold the doilys in half, then in half again. Then scrunch a little in the centre to make them look like little ruffled flowers.

3. Thread flowers through yarn, and into a wreath or onto wire.

And this is what it might look like if you make a chandelier for a wedding reception with it...
