How to make homemade Christmas ornaments from yiayia’s doilies




It’s that time of the year again! Christmas has arrived and people are starting to put on some Christmas carols as they decorate their beloved Christmas trees.

The Greek Herald has decided to jump on the Christmas bandwagon and share its top tips for how to repurpose and recycle your yiayia’s doilies to create a beautiful new Christmas ornament filled with memories.

It’s really as simple as stretching fabric over a wireframe!


  • Yiayia’s doily
  • Mason jar lid ring
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Christmas hooks
  • Scissors


  1. Stretch out the doily & hot glue it to the edges of the mason jar ring.
  2. Let the glue dry.
  3. Attach a cheap Christmas ornament hook.
  4. Hang it on your Christmas tree.

If you’re after something a little more decorative – for example the shape of angel wings – you can create a stencil on a piece of cardboard and trace the edge of it with craft wire. Next, glue this craft wire to the doily and leave to dry. Cut any excess doily and you’re all set!
