Eat your heart out Martha Stewart! Just kidding, Martha Stewart would probably laugh at this garland. But, it’s cheap, cute and easy—three qualities you should look for in just about anything haha. I’m clearly on a roll tonight! Anyway, I wanted to make a garland for my friend’s surprise bridal shower that was held recently and I already had a roll of beige lace. The vibe we were going for was casual, southern BBQ meets vintage lemonade stand. These are the things that emerge from my mind which would explain why my mind is so full.
What you’ll need:
A roll of lace/string/cord (depending on what look you’re going for)
A pack of paper doilies (can be purchased at any Dollar Store)
A measuring tape or ruler to measure how far apart you want the doilies and how long you want your cord (garland) to be
Cut the lace or cord according to how long you need your garland to be. Decide how far apart you want your doilies to be and then fold the doily over the cord so that it’s bent over it. Then glue the two ends of the doily together and repeat until your garland’s complete. That’s it, easy-peazy!
