Craft Project: Fall Doily Wreath

Gold Post Medal for All Time! 969 Posts

With an older doily, rattan ring, and some time, you can have a nice wreath.

Approximate Time: 60 to 90 minutes


  • rattan ring
  • Advertisement

  • doily of your choice
    I used one I found at a thrift shop.
  • cool temp glue gun
  • ribbons of your color choices
  • embellishments of your choice
  • metallic ribbon
  • buttons of your choice


    Fall Doily Wreath Supplies

  1. I didn't want to string the ribbon through the doily, so I just did the ribbon first, gluing to the back every 4-5 wraps. I used two colors that worked with my doily. rattan ring wrapped in ribbon

  2. Then, I hot glued the doily to the back of the wreath. Fall Doily Wreath Step 2


  3. Flip over and choose a position to attach the big ribbon.

  4. I made mine to look like I tied it, as this kind of ribbon is hard to work with when you are actually trying to make a bow. You just make a loop and tie with some crochet thread or yarn. Glue that to the bottom of the ring.

  5. Embellish with the things you want to put on it, using the glue gun. If you wanted to do this with wrapped ripped fabric, buttons would work really well. I used some DT fall glitter leaves, buttons, and such to make it just like I wanted it to be. You can do the same. Button Embelishments

  6. Hang with ribbon through the rattan rings.

This can be custom made to your specs. So don't think if you don't have what I had that you can't make this wreath. See what you have, find the rest cheaply, and have fun!

I never in a million years would have thought of that. Very pretty and clever! I have many beautiful doilies that would look nice made this way. A different one for every holiday and season.
