DIY Doily Wedding Projects

Doilies aren’t exactly a new idea. Chances are, our great grandmothers had doilies on their wedding tables. Today, brides have been taking doilies and using them in new, creative ways to add a romantic, vintage touch to their wedding decor. Here are a few of our current favorites:

DIY Doily Wedding Projects

Doily Garland

This gorgeous garland would be very simple to make using inexpensive paper doilies and strings of Christmas lights.  This would be beautiful over a dessert or candy buffet table or to decorate the ceiling for a tent wedding.

Doily Candle Holder

This simple project is made by soaking cloth doilies in sugar starch and then forming it around a balloon. One the starch dries, pop the balloon and you have a romantic tea light holder that can be used as part of your tablescape.

Doily Balls

I LOVE this idea – it’s a romantic vintage take on the paper lantern. You can use it lighted for a romantic glow or unlighted depending on your decor.  Check out the project at More Designs Please.

Doily Covered Jars

If you’re planning a rustic wedding with a romantic touch – these are perfect. Mason jars covered in doilies can then be decorated with ribbon, yarn, string and other small embellishments to match your decor.
