Easy Doily Table Runner

Hello my friends !

I have been saving doilies for so long- who knows why-

I remembered seeing many different versions of table runners in the past

and thought I would put on together for Mother's Day Brunch.




I just did some layering. and used some white thread with a whip

stitch to hold it all together.


If you like the look but don't want it to be

permanent- just laying the doilies in place 

would work fine!

Nothing could be easier!


I added Milk Glass bud vases to the center-


 for a simple table decoration.


I hope you have special weekend!

  1. Lisa, I just LOVE this look! I collect both milk glass and vintage doilies, but I never thought to put them together like this. I've seen curtains made of doilies, but this is so clever! I love the idea of just laying them on the table rather than connecting them. I think I feel a Mother's Day table idea coming on. Thanks for this post!

    1. Thank you Barb! You made my day. Now we are best friends ;)
      It does look nice on a dark wood table. I store my runners over a hanger in an extra closet- wrinkle free. Thanks for visiting, I hope you come back and look around sometime. Happy Mother's Day to you-

  3. I love doilies Lisa! During a visit with my sister man years ago, she commented, what are you grandma's age, what's with the doilies. I said well, I happen to love them! I am glad to see I am not the only one who still does. Thank you for sharing.

    1. I do appreciate the craftsmanship! So light and feminine- I plan to make a curtain backdrop next- I think it will look beautiful to have light shinning through- :)

  4. Lisa,
    As usual, I love your doily idea. I have so many of them and have used them on my table. I don't have any milk glass. Great idea. Congratulations, you are being featured on Thursday Favorite Things.

  7. Very pretty! I took some doilies from my mom's house after she passed, but I think most of them are already table runner style (made by her own mother), beautiful, but not the pretty round ones like you have. Still, I should get them out of the cedar chest and actually use them!
