a little lace for Spring

  *there are a few days left if you'd like to enter the CSN Stores $25 giftcard giveaway! click here to find out how to enter*

A few weeks ago I was out and about doing some shopping for Emma's birthday party and found a package of little white paper doilies at the dollar store.
I picked them up thinking it's always good to have some doilies on hand, even if they didn't make it into the party decor. :)

It turned out to be a good thing that I did, because they turned into this pretty garland. :) I folded each one in half and then simply ran them through my sewing machine.
It was incredibly easy to do, and, because the doilies are 4" across, it was quick, too!


I have them listed in the shop here if you'd like me to mail you one (or more!). <3 It's amazing how just draping a lace garland across the wall can soften it and brighten the room.

I'm linking this over at a few of these darling blogs. There are a bunch of gorgeous ideas for Spring being posted in their link parties - I highly recommend you checking them out. :)

I have been looking for ways to decorate inexpensively for my sister-in-law's bridal shower, and it's going to be an "antique tea party" theme. These will fit PERFECTLY!! Thanks for coming up with such a genius idea!

I could also see these with some letters on them spelling out "Happy Birthday" for a little girl's party. Or even "Happy Easter." :-)
