Do you know what time it is? It’s trend time! Today I’m delighted to have a trendy chat with CK Dream Team designer Stacy Cohen. This gal’s elegant taste and lovely style are sure to be reflected in her trend selection—doilies! Let’s see what she has to say.
Doilies seem to be popping up everywhere lately . . . from home décor to clothing to crafts. It’s the feminine and elegant look of doilies that make them my favorite trend right now.
Paper doilies like these (sugarcraft.com) can be found at craft stores, cooking stores, and sometimes the baking aisle at the supermarket. If you’re looking for crocheted doilies, try searching linen stores, thrift stores, flea markets, estate sales, or Ebay. I even found a multi-pack of lovely crocheted doilies at my local dollar store!
Here’s a wonderful idea by Crafts by Amanda that turns plain jars into beautiful home décor items using doilies.
They can be displayed “as is” or with glowing tea lights inside.
Sew a variety of doilies together end-to-end to create a stunning table runner like this one from Under the Sycamore.
Martha Stewart Crafts shows us that a simple paper doily can give wrapped packages a touch of panache.
Doilies have been making the rounds in the fashion world lately. I love the idea of adorning clothing with doilies to create elegant new pieces like the ones featured on Lindsay, etc. I have some ideas swirling around in my head for how I might “renovate” some of my old t-shirts!
Who says that doilies need to be white? These colorful hanging doilies by Lisa Storms for Ucreate were dyed with food coloring.
I’ve gone a bit “doily crazy” lately and I’ve been using doilies on all my scrapbook pages. Here’s a layout I created using doilies that I cut at home using my favorite doily die, made by My Favorite Things.
I hope this post has inspired you to break out some doilies and get crafting!
Stacy, you’re a doily doll! You bet this has us excited to create! Thanks for stopping by and sharing all of your darling doily ideas.
