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 breathtaking… 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!
DIY Papel Picado Garland
A pack comes with 8 rectangle doilies.
That makes one stand of 16 panels for only $1.58!!
you can’t beat that!
These Square paper doilies would look amazing too don’t you think!!
Hope you enjoyed this user-friendly, money-saving DIY craft! ;)
Have 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.
ooh – cool! i will pass this along to my friend!
thanks, sweetie, and so happy you like your goodies!
Oh my goodness.. how easy and how sweet. I think this is such a great idea..thank you for sharing. xoxoo
This is one of those simple but gorgeous things that make you wonder "Why didn't I think of that?"
this is by far the best idea I seen!!! I cant wait to do it for my wedding!!!
Great Idea, Keren! Love having a fellow frugal friend!
Such a pretty wedding!I've never even heard of papel picado until now, then I googled it to discover that it is like another favorite of mine, Scherenschnitte.
Super great idea! Thanks for sharing!
That is genius! I love the Mexican papeles but you're right – pretty expensive. Love your simple gorgeous idea.
I can not tell you how hard I heart this. Gorgeous!
Love it! This is SUCH a great idea!
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?
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!
