♥DIY Papel Picado Graland♥!

[wpdreams_rpp id=0]

!!What a DREAM wedding!!
Using Mexican inspired Papel Picado for an outdoor romantic wedding is
a big wedding and party trend right now!

..Not very budget friendly..but absolutely breath taking…

Let me show you by using Rectangle doilies instead.. you will not only get you a similar effect.. you will also walk away saving a ton of cash!

*My DIY Papel Picado Garland*

* vellum tape was a easy way to adhere the paper doilies to the fishing string
A pack comes with 8 rectangle doilies.
That makes one stand of 16 panels for only $1.58!!

you cant beat that!

These Square paper doilies would look amazing too dont you think!!
Hope you enjoyed this user friendly, money saving DIY craft! ;)

Have a a wonderful and blessed Friday everyone!!

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight,
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Psalm 19:14

    What a great idea! I bet spray painting or water color painting them would also make them look lovely.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I love this and will be doing it for my wedding in October. Thank you for sharing the how to. Just one question. What size of doilies did you use on your wedding?

  16. Free Pretty Things For You says:

    oh i didnt use these at my wedding… i just thought it would be an awesome idea!

    i really cant remember what size the were.. all i can tell you is they were the rectangle ones and i cut them in half.. i would measure them but they are packed away!

Speak your mind..
