Fave fad find...Doilies...

There's something very feminine about doilies.
The soft edges and delicate swirls.
Simple Elegance at its finest.

Doilies are making a comeback in all the right ways.
There's: Doilie fashion, Doilie Decor, Doilie Packaging, Doilie Accessories...

Here are a couple fun doily finds to help inspire you (because we all have a few doilies from Granny that are collecting dust in a box somewhere)...

Doily Stencil Pumpkins

Doily Wedding Dress with the perfect pops of color!
Doily Pendant DIY
A Hand Crocheted Doily Rug
Doily Cupcake Wrappers (free template)

Doily Table Runner (I am going to be doing this)

Doily headband DIY
(technically it's lace but it has the doily feel)
So...Ready to get your doily on?
I know I am!

Question: Do you think doilies are too feminine for a house full of boys?

  1. I made a doily runner just like that awhile back and I still love it! You should totally do it.
