Hello hello, how are you? Busy busy with the holiday season right? It’s flying by! I was going through some pictures from last year and realized I never shared a few pictures featured in Emily Henderson’s Holiday Guide in 2011. Emily asked me to come up with something creative for the guide and I was loving the idea of decorating with lace. I had no idea lace would be so big in 2012 when I saw all the fall fashion on display in NYC earlier this year!
Lace is appearing everywhere in fashion again and in so many bold colors. Here’s a peek at the four creative ways to use lace that I shared in the guide last year when decorating during the holidays.
Long strips of larger lace make a great stencil! I secured long pieces to plain wrapping paper with painter’s tape, then dusted it with two light coats of green spray paint to make unique wrapping paper.
Attach it to the base of cake stand to dress up a holiday dessert.
Line the back of your bookcases with a modern gift wrap (this is a Marimekko pattern found at Crate + Barrel) and then run delicate lace along the shelves for a snowy effect.
And of course a bold colorful piece of lace makes lovely gift wrap!
Have you embraced the comeback of lace this year?
