I’m continuing to work through my own personal transitions but I still have lots of crochet inspiration to share with you. I think doilies have tons of potential for so many different things including art.

doily art

I’m loving this example of layered doilies-on-canvas, a wall hanging by Etsy’s WhiteHome, who explains:

“It has been created from a canvas that I painted brown in a blotchy rain spattered technique. I then covered it with overlapping doilies, and added hand made fabric flowers of cotton, silk, and felt. The design is all creams, whites, and beiges.”

I hope that this inspires you to consider new uses for doilies. What would you do with a stack of doilies right now if you were at your most creative? Get more doily inspiration.

      I didn’t make this myself but I would try some type of fabric adhesive; I buy mine at the local fabric store.

      How did you attach doilies to canvas. Also did you stiffen the doilies
