Using Doilies to Decorate

I love all things country, romantic and simple.  Though they take a lot of ingenuity, time and patience to make, doilies are just the ticket for decorating country.  I look for them in every antique store, craft store and auction I go to.  They’re delicate, simple-looking, romantic and easy to work with.  Here’s a few ways I use them in my decor:

I’m working on some ideas to incorporate them in some wall art and in my framed items.  Aren’t they delicate, fancy and still country???

    • I have some both grandmothers and have bought so many for almost nothing at yardsales and auctions years ago. I’ve got some plans to make some wall art with some that have tattered edges or stains. Wish you were able to use them too!
