Vintage Doilies Christmas Decorations

Vintage Doilies Christmas Decorations

Do you have inherited vintage doilies that you would love to preserve and find a use for?  Today I am sharing a super quick tutorial with you for vintage doilies Christmas decorations. Vintage doilies are beautiful, for me, they evoke hours of crafting. It’s a real shame when they frequently sit in a drawer rather than finding a way to incorporate them into everyday life. 

 

These beautiful doilies were passed onto me by my mother when she recently downsized – I would love to find a variety of ways to use them around my modern-day home. Post Christmas I will have to another think and come up with some other ideas – what’s great about this project is you can undo and reuse the doilies!

The vintage doilies Christmas decoration is super quick and easy to make, using a needle thread either garden twine or a thread that blends in around the doily.

You may find it helpful to use a bit of tape to hold the central point of the doilie at the base of the large bauble.Transform your damily heirloom vintage doilies into upcycled Christmas decorations - super quick and easy to make add a vintage feel to baubles.

It really is that quick and simple – the only aspect that requires any thought is matching the size of bauble to size of the doily!

I would love to have some large red baubles to give a stronger contrast, alternatively, if you don’t mind using your doilies as a resist you could spray paint the baubles, then remove the doily to see what effect you have created. Personally I like the doilies too much to try this!
