DIY Paper Doily Craft Ideas from Martha Stewart Weddings

If you remember the paper doily inspired tablescape I designed earlier this year, it will likely come as no great surprise that I was ecstatic to see the inventive paper doily crafts featured in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, which they were kind enough to share. This issue is positively loaded with incredible DIY tips, ideas, crafts, projects and inspiration. I’m definitely going to let this inspire me to work a little more paper doily beauty into my life. I suggest you do the same. Who knew something so inexpensive and readily accessible at nearly all crafts stores could look so pretty?

I’ve done a bit of doily DIY myself. FYI – if you use the cheapest doilies, you’ll have a handful of torn paper. Spend a little extra and get the waxed ones. You will save yourself tears and anxiety if you do!

I think I have this issue and did not even realize this fabulous doily thing was in there! I totally love the clear plate with doily/name under it…! To die for!

It is so great to see the doily back in fashion!

It’s crazy how that chandelier doesn’t even look like it’s made from doilies. Love how it turned out!

I loved the new issue.. but I didn’t notice that sweet place setting with the calligraphy and doily under the glass plate. As soon as I saw it I thought, “Why didn’t I think of that!?” So simple but genius!
