Paper Doily Wreath

   

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I can't resist paper doilies, can you?

 

From the Dollar Tree - where else?













I used them to make this little Valentine wreath.


 

 I used part of a package of Large and part of a package of medium paper doilies. One layer of each size, plus a couple extra where I felt it needed it.



 I rolled the doilies into cones then glued them to a foam board circle. Cardboard would work just as well. I had the foam board on hand so I used it. A medium doily, backed by a hear cut from white card stock is glued to the center, with a bow of cream colored ribbon and a loop of ribbon on the back as a hanger.



It is difficult to see in the pictures, but the word Love is embossed in the center of the heart.


I have been into white, white, white, lately, but I did clip some  vintage Valentine cards to the bunting swaged across my office window. 


The Mother Valentine has the  sweetest verse...
 



My Mother”. . .
There’s no sweeter phrase for lips or heart to say
 
It brings back joyful memories of many a by-gone day
It tells of cheer and gentleness And of love year after year
 
And my sweetest Valentine Greetings go to YOU,
 
My Mother Dear !

  6. Hi Susan,

    Such sweet hearts, pink and red and white, lacy and lovely, in a wreath or a garland. Your teacup and saucer is equally pretty. Charming post!

  10. Susan, I love paper doilies also! Your wreath is really a thing of beauty. I've made a wreath by rolling book pages, but never thought of doing the same with doilies. Love it! Thanks for sharing it with SYC. Thank you my sweet friend for liking my plaid picnic!
    hugs,
    Jann
