I'm always inspired by fabulous store windows...I came across this gem at Enchanted Florist and fell in love! They made paper doily garlands and I loved the vertical flow contrasted so well with the bright pops of color from the paper lanterns and fans.
I love this idea because paper doilies are so affordable, you can get packs of them at Dollar Tree. My Cash & Carry has a 250 pack for only $5.00 and that will make a lot of garlands. I knew I had to duplicate the garland with a with a Halloween twist! I know, you can't even think about Halloween, but you can start working on these now and have lots of them for your party.
Hang up a few of these garlands over your party table and you know they'll be the talk of your Halloween party. They are so easy to make, here's how you do them...
Fold each doily in half, then half, then half again so when unfolded, your doily has eight folded sections. Then you have to mountain-fold a few folds so that your doily sits like...well a mountain. OK, so if you don't fold origami, you don't know what a mountain-fold is. Basically, your folds alternate 'sticking out' and 'sticking in'.
