Vintage Doilie Embellished Headband

When I visit my favorite Vintage Consignment stores I am always on the hunt for Doilies! Doilies seem to be a very useful and when you find some amazing ones and still don’t have a use for them, grab them anyway and hold on to them until you get inspired!

This project want meant for Doilies!

Doilies aren’t just meant for grandma’s end table any more! Use them as a modern supply for this trendy layered headband.

You can typically find Vintage Doilies at Thrift and Consignment stores ranging in price from $1-$8 depending on the age and condition. These were $3 each.

I folded this beautiful doilie twice to get this final shape. This piece will be the foundation of our headband! It’s the first section that is hot glued onto your fabric wrapped headband.

And here’s where the fun begins! Start layering! I found these glittered embellishments at an after Christmas sale for only 50 cents and they were going to be perfect! Black Tulle, lace and a vintage broach finish it all off! Layer and stack each item and secure with hot glue and you’ll get…

Super cute! The doilies make the perfect starting point for any headband. Here’s the other one I’ve made with the yellow doilie that I cut in half…

So grab a doilie and get start creating your a layered look all your own!
