doilies are cool again
it happened while i wasn’t looking: doilies became cool. not that long ago, they were gauche, grand-motherly, and reminders of a bygone era. it’s taken me a while to get on board this “new” trend, but now i can’t get enough. i wanted to share some cool doily crafts that you can make for your home. using paper or lace doilies, you can do lots of cool things. go snatch them up from the thrift store before they’re all gone!
click on any of the photos to link to the tutorials (if i could find them). and there must be a million more ideas out there! stiffen lace doilies with starch and form into whatever your heart desires or sew them together and use them anywhere you would lace. use paper doilies as templates, too, stenciling through them on cards or glue them to simple paper bags for luminarias. for more ideas on how to craft with doilies, check out these suggestions at martha stewart or these at country living
