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.
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!
