From clothing to housewares, doilies make lovely accents for all sorts of DIY projects.
Martha Stewart walks you through how to make a doily tablecloth. She suggests using all uniform doilies, but I think a mis-matched doily quilt would be a charming adornment for the dinner table! If you’ve come into a batch of different sized doilies, just find yourself a large surface to piece together your tablecloth before you start sewing. It’s like a beautiful, vintage puzzle!
Over at Craftster, Silvana shows you how to use a vintage doily to give a boring old tank top some pop. Bonus points if you score the doily and the tank top at the same thrift store!
