Doily lampshade


I picked up a pile of old doilies from the hospice shop, hand washed them deliciately but a few holes still appeared after being washed.  I'm just learning to crochet so I'm starting to look at these doilies differently, so much work involved.


Then I covered a bare wire lamp shade for Lillie's room. Ta Dahhhh!

Linking up with Max for Op-Shop Show-Off


  1. Ohh a little twin for the one I made.
    Looks amazing. I love the dappled shadows it creates on the ceiling. x

  2. i love this! it has to be my favourite use of doilies ever!

  3. Such a clever use for doilies. It must look so pretty at night. xo
