With all the thrift store shopping that I do, I often find old doilies that are stained, torn, ripped or otherwise, cast-off. I have a growing collection of them… I like finding creative ways to give them new life – since Easter is all about new life, this is a perfect craft for this season.
Stained pieces like this one are in abundant supply and are often priced around 50 cents or so, which makes this a very budget friendly item. Sometimes you can get the stains out but other times, they just won't budge.
Here are the supplies you need:
Decorative eggs – I got mine at Target but I found these wooden eggs on Amazon (affiliate link) which would be great.
Crochet lace doilies – you can also buy doilies in large quantities on Amazon (affiliate link)
Pen for marking the doily
Low-temperature glue gun (affiliate link)
Wrap your egg in the doily so you get a feel for how/if you want to center a pattern, as well as how much doily you need to allow to cover your egg.
Trim your area and center your egg.
Add a line of glue and press lace into it.
The low temp glue gun is the secret weapon for this speedy craft. It sets up almost immediately which is why this is such a quick craft. I also like using the low-temp glue because if my line of glue doesn't happen to be in the right spot I can gently peel the glue line off and try again.
At first, I thought I would make a whole bowl of them, but when this one was done I really liked the beautiful simplicity of the wooden eggs paired with the one crochet egg. But now that you know how to make them you can make as many as your doily-loving heart desires!
Do you feel inspired to start cutting up your old doilies? I know it can feel a little scary to cut up old pieces like this but once you start you will find all kinds of ideas of new creations you can make. And of course, I'll be sharing more ideas like this soon!
