{Create your own doilies bunting}

Doilies, a cake and pastries best friend. Prettifying a sweet treat indulgence in all shapes and patterns. What could be cuter then heart doilies? 
Looking at the doilies every day in the shop I really wanted to use a pack for decoration to, the cakes will just have to be imaginary for the moment :). So I attempted a doilies bunting/garland. Perfect for parties/occasions, great for a craft project, the doilies make a great base to add your own designs and customization. Lovely to decorate a craft room to.
Circular bunting would also be fantastic to - portioned up as though your cutting a cake into segments - the decorative edge at the top - creating triangular sections like traditional bunting.

Goodies used:
Heart doilies from Jamboree £3.95. Cupcake circular doilies available to.
Golden metallic ribbon for threading.
Pictured is also pink lace ribbon, although I didn't use this, would be lovely as bows to add embellishments.
I also used pink glitter glue.
Below: Floral vintage inspired craft paper A4 50 pence from Jamboree.

 I added the Jamboree "J" after I threaded the hearts, but can easily be done before hand to.

I threaded the ribbon through the doilies decorative edge

And hey presto! pretty doilies bunting. I added pink glitter glue to the floral detail on the smaller hearts, unfortunately it doesn't show on the image. Have a peek next time your in Jamboree.

Here is our bunting over our 60's kitchen dresser. I used the large butterfly decorative clips £4.95, to create the swags. Unfortunately not the words best photo, but hopefully you get the idea.
