DIY Doily Banner Tutorial

DIY Doily Banner (VIDEO tutorial)

This dainty doily banner is so easy and CHEAP to make! It costs under $2 to create and the effort is minimal. It is the perfect decor for an afternoon tea and all the supplies can be found at the dollar store.

I made this banner for a mutual friend’s Kentucky Derby themed bridal shower. Unfortunately, I couldn’t attend because I was on vacation; but it looked lovely from the pictures. The girls were asked to dress in floral with hats or fascinators in their hair – I love a good theme! It is hard to plan events with limited money; but it is possible to throw a stellar party when you use your creative DIY brain.

See below for instructions on how to create your own banner.


DIY Doily Banner Supplies

  • Doilies (3 sizes)
  • Ribbon (colour choice is yours)
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors


  1. First decide on your pattern – the combination can be whatever you like. For my banner I went with the pattern: small, medium, big, medium, small. I liked this because there was a focal point in the middle
  2. Fold your doilies in half
  3. Glue the folded doilies over the ribbon in the pattern you chose. Drop some glue in the crease of the doily and press down
  4. Continue gluing the doilies until you reach your desired length
  5. Leave enough excess ribbon on both ends so that you can hang/tie the banner
  6. Hang and admire your banner
