It’s no secret that one of the first places we turn to for inspiration is Pinterest. When we come across any kind of material and start brainstorming, we often head to Pinterest to see if our idea has been done before, or if there are all sorts of other ideas we haven’t thought of yet.
Case in point for today is the doily. Whether you call it a doiley, a doilie, or a circular piece of lace, you’ve likely seen one of these little darlings and maybe even set a dessert table involving many. We’re pumped to give props to all our fellow DIYers out there, and are totally impressed by these 15 DIY doily projects. Stay tuned for our own collection of DIY doily goodness in the weeks to come.
1.Painted Packaging: Love this use of doilies as stencils. This could work with paper doilies as well but they might not hold up quite as long. Could also try with any kind of lace fabric or trim.
2.Fabric Doily Bowl: Create a bowl for delicate things like necklaces and wedding invitations. So lovely.
3.Lacy Envelope Liners: We’re not suggesting this as a DIY for all your wedding invites, but maybe a few select ones.
4.DIY Vintage Doily Necklace: We love love love this one! It’s a statement necklace and a delicate piece of history. This involves a vintage fabric doily found at a thrift shop, regular necklace chain, and a bit of handiwork.
5.Upcycled Doily Lamp: We’ve seen this one and ones similar to it kicking around the interwebs for a while. It’s fairly simple to make and is a great accent piece to a modern or rustic living room.
6.Doily Jar Luminaries: You didn’t think we’d get through a DIY roundup without mentioning a mason jar, did you? Silly!
7.Doily Stenciled Pumpkin: With Halloween right around the corner, we’ve got our eye on all sorts of hacks for decorating pumpkins. This is definitely going on our list.
