Making Pretty Garlands

Hello All

I hope you all are enjoying the sunday.
We have a beautiful sunny day here today.

You have probably seen all these beautiful
garlands made of vintage doilies around in blogland
so when I got my hands on a bunch of doilies
at my latest flea market I decided to make
my own version of a doily garland

I decoated the doilies with cheesecloth
and a sweet image printed on muslin

Think they turned out quite pretty

on the left in this photo
there´s one made of little lace pieces
all decorated differently

the doily garland with the pretty images

and here´s a close up of
the lace garland

vintage buttons, religious medaillion,
sweet images, a vintage key

so here they are in my version.

the greatest joy
is to create with those flea market finds
I just love that.
The garlands will be in the shop later today.

What have you been up to lately?

Wishing you all a beautiful sunday
Tina  ♥♥♥

Well Tina I think you have displayed these doilies so beautifully. The vintage images, buttons etc have given these market finds a new lease of life and don't we just love doing that? I can just see them draped along the top of an antique dresser or dressing table.
Have a very fruitful week my friend,

Vicki said...

Tina these are beautiful! You definitely put your own twist on it. I love each and every piece. I agree with Dawn. This would look great draped over a cornice board or perhaps over a door. Gorgeous. Inspiring me to dig through all my doilies.
