Blow up a balloon, cover it in doilies using a craft glue. When it's dry, pop the balloon & you have an awesome decoration. Bet you could use it as the lampshade on a small pendant light, too. Great-gramma's and my MIL's doilies may find another use.
Strip clean your old lamp shade frame and dress with doilies. These make lovely, original shades and throw enchanting light tricks into your room. // A fun family history craft & DIY project for your old family doily you inherited. Bring it back to life!
