Martha Style: Doilies for the Holidays

There was no way to make that title NOT sound dorky. Somehow its hard to embrace the word "doilies" on Apartment Therapy the same way that the editorial team does in the new issue of Martha Stewart Living....they have the whole sincere, doily-embracing thing down. But, we decided to go with it anyway - their execution of the much maligned doily into a winter-y holiday motif is worth it. Jump below for more...

Above the Jump: A holiday dinner table with a cloth made from stitched together doilies.

According to the article, this wreath is a simple project, made from paper bouquet holders, twinkle lights and a wreath frame. How To instructions are included in the magazine.

Doilies as window decor. We really like the look of this winter-y window hanging and probably wouldn't want to take it down after the holidays.

Doilies as ornaments on a feather tree - a very vintage and elegant look in gold and white. Packages are topped with doilies as well, a nice idea, especially with the green papers shown. The paper tree topper how to is included in the issue.

For more: Check out Martha Stewart Living online or pick up the December issue, on newsstands November 17th.
