Doilies make the cutest crafts. Many people already have these beauties in their homes either on display or tucked away in a closet or drawer. Doilies are delicate, feminine and look like lace. If you love adding a sweet vintage look to your craft projects, then you might want to consider doily crafting.

Scrapbookers will discover that adding bits and pieces of paper doilies to their layouts give a beautiful old-world feel to their memories. Card makers find that doilies work well for card crafting too. Crafters have even made wall art from doilies. Paper doilies have hundreds of uses. Your imagination only limits you.

You can use crocheted doilies for any of the following projects, but paper ones will work just as well. They aren't very expensive, and you can find handmade doilies for pennies at a thrift shop. Paper ones are for sale at the dollar store or your big box hobby store.

20. Doily Stones

You can crochet the doilies to wrap the stones, or you can buy small doilies to make a wrap. For the latter, you'd need to run a row of stitching around the outside of the doily and pull the string gather the stitches and make it wrap around the stone. It's definitely a conversation starter. For the directions to put this together, go to Let's Yarnify.

Two matching doilies and a bit of ribbon will get you started on this ornament project.

KGAnony on August 31, 2020:

There are some beautiful projects here! There is one thing that bothers me, though. The article shows what you are calling a "Dream Catcher". Unfortunately, you can't really say that accurately, or considerately. I guess it's really a "Native American-inspired wall hanging", which isn't nearly as catchy and a lot more to write. But it is more descriptive and respectful.

Yvonne sharpe on June 08, 2019:

Nice ideas. But not what I was searching for. It's something that teachers used to buy the old doilies to use for something in crafts . They would get the pattern of. The doilies and work something with it. I don't know what they did. It was a teacher from Alberta who came to a garage sale and bought the whole bunch. For her school .

anonymous on September 08, 2013:

@anonymous: so with you

acreativethinker on January 26, 2013:

These doilies are simply lovely. Take Care :)

anonymous on October 05, 2012:

Lorelei Cohen from Canada on June 05, 2012:

Wow I love the chandelier as well as the lighted wreath. It is hard to tell that these items are made from paper doilies they are gorgeous.

15 Best Lace Doilies Crafts for Vintage Inspiration

If you ask us, there’s nothing quite so feminine and delicate when it comes to fashion and home decor as lace. At the same time, most of our very favourite crafts and DIY projects are nearly always those that involve repurposing or upcycling things. These things combined are part of the reason we’ve been finding ourselves rather interested in the idea of making things from old lace doilies lately! There’s just something so vintage inspired and lovely in the results that we love, no matter what we’re making.

Just in case you love the idea of making all kinds of new things from lace doilies just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance.

1. DIY lace doily bowl


If, like us, you’ve always been intrigued by the idea of making structure things from materials that were originally soft, then we have a feeling you’ll very much enjoy the way Positively Splendid turned their old lace doilies into these stunning lacy bowls that can be used for all kinds of trinkets or even as the base for a decorative tea light candle!

2. Colourful sun crochet coaster pattern


What if you saw the term “lace doilies” and your mind immediately jumped to how much you’ve always wanted to learn how to make those yourself? Well, lace work is certainly a learnable DIY skill but here’s a tutorial from Fave Crafts that will help crochet lovers specifically make it happen a little more easily! Their pattern shows you how to make adorable, brightly coloured crochet lace coasters.

3. Spring doily table runner


Do you actually have several pretty lace doilies lying around that you’ve collected over the years with the intention of making them into something but wha you’ve gathered is very eclectic and all differently sized? Then it sounds like you have just about everything you might need to make your own version of this interestingly stunning lace doily table runner featured on Sadie Seasongoods!

4. Upcycled crochet doily tote bag


Did we really catch your attention with this whole concept of affixing lace doilies together in order to make something akin to a fabric but you’re just not sure that a table runner is really what you meed right now? Then perhaps you’d get along a little better with this tutorial from DIY Clothes that shows you how to make a tote bag instead! We’re obsessed with the way they created a delicate tote complete with good, solid handles.

5. DIY doily wall art


Rather than making something practical, are you feeling whimsically crafty in the sense that you might rather make something cheerful and decorative, even if it doesn’t serve any other kind of purpose than to bring a smile to your face or brighten up your space? Then we think you just might be the perfect person to make something like this fantastic lace doily, scrap fabric, and canvas wall art outlined step by step on Mod Podge Rocks.

6. Lace doily t-shirt


Are you actually so in love with the stunning vintage aesthetic that comes along with lace doilies that you can’t help wishing you could wear them around all the time and show their beauty off to the world outside of just your home? Then we think you just might be the perfect person to make something like this stunning lace doily t-shirt outlined step by simple step on By Hand London!

7. Lace doily garland


Perhaps the kinds of doilies you have to work with are colourful and small so you’re looking for a very fun, fairytale-like craft to show them off with that will really add to the atmosphere of your room? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how C Jane Create string theirs into a garland and hung them up with twinkling string lights!

8. DIY lace doily shoes


Did we really catch your attention when we started talking about ways to wear lace doilies but you can’t help wondering whether or not there might be more unexpected ways to incorporate them into your fashion than sewing them onto a t-shirt like an applique? Then we have a feeling you’ll get a real kick out of the way Makezine used their Mod Podge skills to cover a pair of shoes in lace from brightly coloured doilies!

9. Doily covered lamp shade


Are you actually still scrolling through our list thinking about how the thing you love most about lace doily crafts is definitely their vintage looking aesthetic when you’re all finished? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at the way A Beautiful Mess made this stunning lace doily lampshade that throws lovely, delicate shadows on the walls when you turn the light on.

10. Doily imprinted salt dough ornaments


Perhaps you actually love lace so much that you’ve been wondering whether you might use old doilies to add those pretty lines and holes to other things that are not made of lace, just to spread the beauty even more? Then we’re pretty sure you’ll appreciate the way Dishfunctional Designs made lovely salt dough ornaments, adding the details by using lace doilies and a rolling pin to imprint them with a pretty lace pattern.

11. DIY lace doily globe lamp


Are you actually still feeling quite intrigued indeed by the idea of making soft fabric based things into more structured pieces by the bowls we showed you earlier just didn’t hit home for you? Perhaps we also really caught your attention when we started talking about lace doily pieces that involve lights. In either case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Dos Family made this stunning lace doily globe lamp from beautifully different pieces!

12. Lace doily curtains


If you’re going to go to all the effort of making a lace doily piece from scratch, would you rather make a slightly bigger piece that makes a little bit more of a statement and really draws the eye? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how BLDG 25 made themselves a set of stunning lace doily curtains that give the whole room an air of vintage revival!

13. Lace doily luminaries


Have you actually been thinking about how much you liked the concept of using something like Mod Podge to do a bit of decoupage with your old lace doilies but the shoes we showed you earlier just weren’t quite your style?
