Tutorial: Vintage Fabric Doily Globes

Remember these fabric doily globes from Petite Social's Vintage Teddy Bear Tea Party? My gal pal, Katie, is here today to show you how to add a little vintage flair to your next party with this easy DIY project.


Materials/Supplies:
* Round latex balloons
* Paint brush
* Fabric doilies
* Fabric stiffener

1. Blow up a round latex balloon and set it on top of a stand (a large pail works great) to keep it upright.
2. Cover the balloon with a doily.
3. Brush a generous amount of fabric stiffener all over the doily until it is soaked and sticking to the balloon. Let dry overnight.
4. The doily should now be stiff and secured to the balloon. Flip the balloon upside down, then overlap another doily onto the balloon.
5. Brush a generous amount of fabric stiffener all over the doily until is is soaked and sticking to the balloon. Let it dry overnight.
6. Once your doilies have hardened, pop the balloon with a need and gently pull out the popped balloon.

Voila! You can tie a string on the doily globe and hang as chandelier, or scatter on the floor for additional decor.
