$2 Doily Window Display

We're so excited about all the great crafts being shared at our very first Wayward Weekend! It's not too late to join in!


Valentine's Day is coming and this year I want to throw a party. I thought I'd see what I could make using supplies from Dollar Tree. I got two packs of doilies and went to work.

Supplies:
Foam board
Clear plastic string
Doilies
Tape

Tools:
Box cutter

I started by cutting a piece of form board about 4 inches wide by 30 inches.

Next I laid out the doilies on the floor the way I wanted them to look:

Then I took the clear plastic string (jewelry making supplies) and measured out equal lengths for the first layer. I taped them to the board and to the doily. When I tried them out, I noticed that I needed to back the red ones (they are only colored on one side). I repeated the same thing for the second layer. I decided on only two for tonight. I might add more later.

The final product looks pretty good in my window!

That is adorable! I bought a bunch of doilies there the other day but then got them home and had no clue what to do with them! Love your project!

That is darling! I'll bet it looks great in the window too. I wish I was more creative in the crafts area...all I do is copy! I guess that's better than nothing. ;) Have a great day!
