The sparkle, 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.

.

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.

I wanted to mention
My friend Christie at Carter’s Cottage is having  a big chalk paint giveaway for Annie Sloan’s American Tour, so stop on over to enter!
