DIY: Lace Light Bulbs - Spray paint a doily onto a light bulb or use a silver pen and draw your own designs. When the light shines through, it will cast a beautiful pattern on your walls. You could use any color spray paint
I've noticed more and more that people get rid of doilies either by thrifting them, giving them away for free, or throwing them out. Here's a creative and unique looking idea for a light shade using doilies.
Paint Dipped Pinecones - Would make a great centerpiece with some red glass ornaments mixed in a clear glass jar! Might try this then add glitter for my Christmas tree this year cuz we know I gotta have my pine cones!
Beautiful lamp shades - paint doilies (or leave them natural), cover in wallpaper paste and stick to a balloon. Wait for the dollies to dry (preferably overnight), pop the balloon. Et voila! Its a bowl.a lampshade.you decide.
