Can you fold them into flowers? Sort of pinch the middle and make a cone shape and tie that with some string or an elastic band and put it on a wire? Could be something for the mens bouts or in your bouquet, centrepieces, etc.

I don’t know if this will work with crocheted doilies… but we strung paper doilies on twine and hung them up like a banner/flags.

Love that pillow! Im tempted to do one like that myself, only we dont have a ring bearer 🙁

Doilies are featuring quite bit in our wedding too. I have made some doily table runners to go on picnic tables, and I might sew some onto cushions as well.

What about paper doily cupcake wrappers?

Have fun collecting doily inspiration 🙂

I’m doing blue glass containers (vases, jars, etc.) with flowers for centerpieces, and came across some doillies my great aunt crocheted…thinking of putting them under some of the jars..
