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.
Instead of painting a doillie - I will display those handmade by my great-grandmother. Old frame painted and antiqued. Added gray burlap with black paint doillie painted on and attached black handles. Cute little bedside tray.
For our room in the corner? :)Painted Cork Coasters Idea: How about decorating them as ornaments or Christmas cookies? Add some homemade cookies, tea, cocoa or coffee packets and a cute mug for a small gift basket.
