Doily Art

Doily Wall Art

This is kind of a blast from the past.
Start out by starching and stretching a doily with pins



While the doily is drying - I covered cardboard with satin material


Spray painted an ugly white frame



After the doily dried I sprayed the back of the doily with spray glue
- this stops it from slipping. I positioned it by finding
 the center of the board and the center of the doily.


Place the glass and secure the back


Up on the wall:

  14. Thanks for the great tutorial. I have several old doilies that I have tucked away in a drawer. This is a nice way to finally show them off.
