Vintage Doily Table Runner

1.5 Hours
Long before I ever thought of becoming a blogger I found a project on Pinterest that I just loved, in fact it was one of my very first pins. The project was a table runner made of vintage doilies by Under the Sycamore. I thought it was so cute. It is full of vintage charm but with a unique modern twist. I instantly knew I wanted to make one. So I set out to find some vintage doilies. A couple of weeks later I scored a whole box of them at a yardsale for $5. I was so excited! And that was where my project came to a screeching halt. For whatever reason I completely forgot about the whole thing, until now!
I finally got the kick in the pants I needed this month with our Monthly DIY Challenge Group. This months theme was Pinterest Inspired Projects. What a perfect time to get this long over due project done. I'm so glad I did too because I just love the way it all came together!

This project was a long time coming for me to complete this, but I think it was worth the wait! Do you ever collect everything you need for a project and then forget about them? It happens to me all too often, but it is something I am working on. I would love to hear about your forgotten and rediscovered projects below!

    I like this table runner you made out of dollies. Can you use a hot glue gun to attach them instead of sewing them? What do you think? Please get back to me in this regards I'd appreciate your time. Thanks for sharing and happy holidays to you and yours.
