DIY: Doily Wall Art

I recently moved from the most girly of all white vintage cottages into a bachelor pad of sorts. I like to think all of Adam’s walls were bare and just waiting for me to come along and plaster all sorts of girly crap on them. YUP…im sure thats what exactly what he was doing.

I’ve had this collection of vintage doilies laying around, and I toyed with the idea of making this DIY lamp or DIY Doily Table Runner, but never got around to it. Over the weekend I thrifted these crochet pillow and thought maybe some wall art would work.

  1. I LOVE IT!! Great job. It’s so very cute. Adams place needed your special touches to it.

    This reminds me of my old apartment in Allston. We made very intricate paper snowflakes one Christmas and hung them from the ceiling. They never came down until years later when we moved out.
