If you’ve been following our Pinterest lately, you’ve probably noticed our mini new obsession with doilies. There’s such a vintage feel to them that we just adore. Of course the most recent obsession is mostly for an upcoming tea party that we are currently planning.
So, when planning a tea party and becoming inspired by doilies, one can’t help but develop the desire to create some fun craft projects using some amazing bargain finds.
In our travels to become inspired, we came across a ton of plain white teacups at Bed, Bath, and Beyond in their As Is Clearance section. The reason for their extreme mark down was due to missing pieces. Well, that works for our purposes. These cups were about $2 each and let’s not forget about those 20% coupons they offer. What a bargain!
So, of course we mentioned doing a craft project using doilies and how much we can’t get enough of them, but for the purpose of this project, we decided to use lace trim instead. This is mostly because this is our first attempt and the lace works well with the doily theme as well.
Not sure if you’re familiar with Mod Podge, but it’s a fun little find and a new product for us. It’s basically a decoupage glue/sealant. This is the only “tool” needed for this project. Well, you’ll also need a paint brush to paint it on and a nice sharp, clean scissors.
How to Steps:
Step Two: Figure out the position of your lace and cut to size.
Step Six: Trim excess lace on top and bottom.
*Now, we plan on applying a top coat as instructed in their directions just to see if it offers a different effect. This project also includes one more step for us that we will post once completed.
