Sugar Bowl Beaded Doily
Assortment of beads
Needle and thread
This craft project is a little on the kitsch side of crafts but it's quick to make and actually very practical, especially if you live in a fly or bug zone.
You can make your own doily or you can embellish a store bought cloth doily.
Glass beads and crystals look elegant and beautiful but you can utilize any arrangement of beads you have available to you.
Start by threader the beads onto a length of strong cotton, fishing line or embroidery thread. Make a length of 5-6 beads and then sew it onto the doily as shown.
Alternate your strands with single beads for a traditional look.
These beaded doily's can be made in bigger sizes to cover food bowls for picnics or BBQ's.
