last minute help: the doily


most of you are doing the mad dash last minute this and that…well here’s a little extra boost of help for the last minutes…from the unexpected…a doily.
i got a package of paper doilies earlier this month in hopes to do something with them…

i made gift tags already…but i had a lot more left over.
i got my clear thread (or fish wire would work as well), and i got the rest of those doilies out, and went to town.

like how about hanging them from your windows? place the thread in one hole on one side, and drape it across the front of your snowflake and thread it in a hole on the other side. this will keep your snowflake facing forward.

hang a cluster of them in a window and enjoy a the pretty view.
or you can dress up a side table, mantel, or shelf by threading a few in a row like a swag.
don’t want to wrap all the presents? got plain boxes…add some doilies with some glue.
you’ll have a few days with the kiddos home before you head off to grandma and grandpa’s, make cards with doilies.
if you are entertaining at your house. dress up your silverware in a cozy made out of a doily.
and don’t even get me started with fabric doilies! i could just think up stuff left and right, but for now here’s a really simple one for a baby.
get your doily (i found mine at walmart in the craft section) get a plain little onesie, and stitch around the edges of your doily in cream thread onto the onesie.
simple and adorable.
okay i’m off till after the holiday weekend. hope you guys enjoy lots of hot chocolate, a lot of good christmas movies (my favs are national lampoon’s christmas vacation, and elf) and if you are traveling…travel safely!
we’ll talk soon!

winner of the best buy GC will be contacted later on this week (so make sure you leave an email in your comment).
you still have one last fighting chance to enter here and here.
ends later today.
