Happy Holidays everyone! Do you want to add some sparkle to your holiday craft projects? Try adorning your creations with glammed up, glittered doilies. I used this glittery doily technique on my “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies” layout that I created for the Supply Savvy feature in the November/December 2012 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.
I die-cut my doilies from cardstock using a variety of doily dies. Store-bought doilies would work too. Simply use a paintbrush to lightly coat the doilies with decoupage medium (like Mod Podge or Decou-Page), then sprinkle on some glitter. If the doilies curl up after drying, you can place them under something heavy for a few hours to flatten them out.
The glittered doilies can be used on a variety of holiday projects like cards, tags, gift wrap and bags, and home décor. Here are a few projects I created using glittered doilies.
A holiday tag:
Here in Los Angeles we don’t get any snow, but I still wanted to give my home a wintery feel this holiday season. I whipped up a bunch of glittered doilies in various shapes and sizes, then I strung them on a piece of string and hung them on our mantel.
I hope this post has inspired you to create your own sparkly doily accents. They’re fun and easy to make.
Wishing you and yours a very happy holiday season!
