Paper Doilies Garland: Gingham and Burlap Christmas


I love gingham.

This year in my dining room I decided to embrace my love of gingham for our Christmas decorations.

Simple.
A little country.
A little rustic.

I am more than a little in love.


I had the wreath, gingham fabric, and the burlap banner just hanging around.

The red snowflakes were from an after Christmas sale. I had originally bought them to use them on my tree, but then they told me they would rather be a lovely little garland. So I listened. I am nice like that.

The last garland is made from paper doilies. Seriously, it is the easiest, cheapest, and loveliest garland ever.

I simply bought a package of 4" paper doilies.


I laid them all out. Separating them from one another is the hardest part. They rather like to cling to each other. 

Then I just fed them through my sewing machine one right after another.


So easy. It take minutes. Minutes I tell you. Then it is all ready to hang up with the other Christmas lovelies.


I am pretty much in love with it all.


I love that when I walk in my house, this is one of the first Christmas scenes I see. A little country Christmas. Kind of my favorite.

I have one more project for this room and I can't wait to show it to you.

Merry Christmas! Happy decorating!
