Repurposed Vintage Doilies and Frames

Ever wonder what to do with vintage crochet doilies and table runners?
I love them but don’t use them in my décor and wanted to come up with something  to showcase their beauty.
Vintage wood frames and vintage doilies make a lovely combination.
Here’s what I came up with.
 Tip: you don't need to use a square doily for a square frame, most of the doilies I used were round. I also think they look better when the center of the doily is off center in the frame, it also makes it easier to attach to the frame.

Staple and stretch the lace over the backside of the frame, make sure you stretch it rather taught, the tighter it is the better it will look.
I also used an old wood window frame, if you don’t have enough room on the middle cross bars to staple, you can also use a fast setting epoxy to adhere the lace to the frame.
When you’re done stapling or gluing, trim the excess doily with scissors.

It was a fast, easy project, I hope you try it.

  6. This is a great idea since people around where I live almost "worship" their doilies. LOL! But I don't like to use them on the backs of furniture or under vases as they do around here. So this is a great alternative. But I doubt I would cut off any excess. I'd probably just figure out a way to "hide" it behind the frame...heaven knows you don't cut up grandma's "good doilies"! Haha!

  7. This is a great way to use some of the doilies I have from my grandmother. They are just sitting in a drawer right now. Now I need another old window! :)

  19. What a great idea! I was hunting around for some things to do with old doilies and I love this. I would like to share it on the Examiner's Arts & Crafts page. I particularly like to share repurposed ideas. I'll link to this post and credit the photo as well. Please let me know what you think. Cheers!

  20. This is a very great idea indeed. The combination of doilies and frame created an amazing decoration. If you have time and wood working skills, you could have used router bits to give too much details to the frame.

  21. SO very beautiful! I wish i was a little more talented when it came to knitting and crocheting (I can do only the basics) because this would make such a lovely gift this coming holiday season!
