The sparkly, doily, snowflake banner….

I’ve been banner crazy this holiday season, and I had seen a few on Pinterest that I just adored. One had doilies hanging with  ornaments. I loved the idea of doilies, but I wanted mine to have kind of a vintagey, collected feel.
I had the idea to use doilies to make a snowflake banner.


My Jo-Ann fabrics has a bin they have all different sizes of doilies for a dollar or two each.

I picked up 6 in different sizes.

The I grabbed my crystal glitter, white craft glue and a brush.

I just brushed the glue on the doily, covering the entire surface.

Then right away sprinkled glitter over the whole thing. I shook off the extra and put it aside to dry. I did this with each of the doilies.

I put a small crease in the end of the paper I was glittering over and poured back the extra glitter for a future project.

Once they were dry, I just stung twine in the holes at the top of each “snowflake”, The craft glue makes them a little stiff so they are easy to string on and they hold their shape really well.

I then tied  a loop in each end and hung it up on my mantle.

It’s super cute and so pretty when it catches the light. It was a pretty quick project to do too. I think it would be an easy project for the kids during winter break too.
