It is almost a guarantee that whatever Op Shop you walk into, you will find a basket full of Grandma's doilies.
Now I have a love/Hate relationship with doilies. I spent a lot of time at my Grandmothers house growing up and they were everywhere! On the couch, mantelpiece, on top of the toilet. There was not a room free of doilies.
But being the avid thrifter that I am, with a flare for Upcycling, I've decided to try and embrace the doilies!!
Soooo..........A quick trip to the Local Salvo's in Chelsea and $3 later I now have myself a basket of doilies. Now, what do I do with them?
I seriously do not know how I survived before Pinterest came along! Here are my favorite idea's for some doilie upcycling.

|My Favorite Bunting! I love the French feel in this setting|
ReStyle a comfy sweatshirt!
Roll a doily into a rose. DIY instructions here
|Pin Cushion. |
What a great way to reuse your old tins
Why not cut up an old pair of jeans, reuse some old buttons and lace to make yourself a charming doilie bracelet.

Do you love or Hate doilies?
Lots of Op Shop Love,
