Here's part 2 of my "decorating with doilies" posts. (Go HERE to see part 1.) I still have some other great ideas so make sure you come back to see everything! And be sure to become a follower on the right side of your monitor. (Yeah, over there, where it says FOLLOWERS. Click on "join this site"!)
For the cupcake liner, simply cut out the center. (It's okay to get to the center by making a slit through the holes. You need the doily to be "broken" to make the liner anyway.)
Roll the doily border until you get to the size of your cupcake paper.
Add a dab of white glue to hold it together. I kept mine long so it almost looks like I doubled up. I think it looks kind of pretty like this, but you can always cut it down to size.
Place your cupcake in the center and that's all there is to it. I love how it looks! Remember that you don't have to use this only for cupcakes...you can put popcorn or candy inside as well.
Another way to use your doilies is to line all your platters and pedestals with them before you put the food on top. It makes the food look so much better.
Try tying a doily around your jars and vases. You can put flowers, candy, punch, potato chips, or even salad inside the jars and vases.
You can also tie a doily around all your drink glasses. If your doilies are a little too big simply fold them in half. And remember that you can always use straws so you don't have to worry about getting your lips on the doilies.
