Diy craft ideas from doilies and lace
In most of the houses, there is a lot of sewed material from the grandmother or mom, while in modern decorative tendencies they don’t use them in the classical form on tables, buffets, trays.
There are three main ways to use such fabrics of any kind and size in decorative constructions – compositions:
1. Sewing together with anyone you like, you’ll create a razor, extraordinarily beautiful edgings for tablecloths, curtains, light hats, etc. or simply sticking them on any surface will turn into frames, clocks, very beautiful frames in retro style for old photos, etc.
2. Using a fabric softener or simple handmade glue will stick on any surface or stand on any “mold” you choose (a bowl, a balloon, etc.) taking the shape and turning it into a lot of beautiful bowls, decorative vases, lamps, candlesticks, etc. in vintage style.
3. Using them as stencils on any surface or pressing them on clay, plaster, etc. before drying, you will have the color or embossed pattern of their design on any type of decorative object/surface.
In addition to textiles, in kitchen/home shops you will find a great variety in designs and sizes of paper towels that can also be used for similar constructions.
