doily lamp

A lamp made out of doilies! Take a bunch of doilies and sort of papier-mache them to a large balloon. Pop the balloon, run a light through the doily-ball, and BAM. The effect is beautiful.

Sugar starch, apply doilies to balloon, let dry, pop balloon and remove.  Paper or crochet doilies could be used.

hang a blown up balloon from a string. dip lace doilies in wallpaper glue and wrap on balloon. once they're dry, pop the balloon and add tea light candle--------great wedding idea


A skirt guard [in this case crochet] was necessary for ladies who cycled in long skirts. The guard prevented the skirt flapping into the spokes and causing an accident and preventing mud from splashing up. Modern cycles don't even have a mud guard.

Beautiful crochet.

Idea: dye the doilies to match the wedding colors (mint, coral, ivory and gold), see them together artfully so the colors combine in a visually appealing way and use as a table runner. The tables should be gently distressed gold
