Vintage Crocheted Doily Garland

What to do with a pile of vintage doilies passed to 
me from my grandmother...

Too beautiful to just sit in a box or a drawer so I created
a garland that can be hung in my shop or sold for 
someone else's enjoyment...

I folded each doily over a length of jute string, hot glued
a few points along the string,
then sewed a vintage button to the center of each doily.

Some of the doilies were rectangular and made 
a beautiful square pennant.

Other pieces were large squares so I folded them in half
and hung them in a triangle shape.

Beautifully hung on my repurposed china cabinet
also a gift from my grandmother's estate.

Hanging on the white piece I transformed from a side of the road find and then found a wine rack that fit perfectly inside.

Anywhere these beautiful vintage doilies hang will be a reminder of days gone by and the intricate crochet work 
someone put into them.

Can you think of someplace in your life to hang these 
vintage beauties?

  5. Really pretty, but as much effort as she put into these, I would tack with thread rather than hot glue so they could be repurposed again.

    1. True Teddee... I only used a tiny dot in the corner of each of them for just that reason :)
