Last week I shared a few projects to make with dishes and this week I’ll be highlighting another easy to find second hand item…doilies. You could raid your grandma’s stash but I promise these ideas are anything but old-fashioned! The first idea is doily place card holders that will give your holiday table a festive touch and make your guests feel special.
The second idea for your inspiration is doily ornaments or gift tags.
To make either of these projects, simply dip your vintage doily in liquid starch and allow either to dry flat for the ornament or on a cardboard tent for the place card holder. Click on the links for more specific directions at my blog.
It is difficult to see why lace is so expensive; it is mostly holes.
