Happy Friday friends! Are you excited that the weekend is finally here?
I am too! We are going to antique shops tomorrow to look for lace doilies  
so I can make a table runner for our wedding dessert table. 
Doilies. I know, right? 
I've been seeing projects and products with repurposed and new spins
on this old craft and I absolutely love it! I've shown a couple in my past 
friday favorites here and here. For today's friday favorites I'm 
sharing some of my favorite doily DIYs. 
Here are some ideas on what to do with your grandma's doilies!

A DIY doily pendant lamp over at Apartment Therapy. I love the 
mixture of blues on lamp.

This doily garland DIY is super cute and super easy! 

I love the romantic look of these diy votives.  

Here's a gorgeous dream catcher DIY from Lune

And last but not least, a lovely doily wall art project. I'm a sucker for 
embroidery hoop art. 

I would love to see your version of these projects if you do one! 
Just link back to me. Enjoy your weekend!
