Up Cycle With Antique Doilies and Turn Trash to Treasure


a part of a doilie, glitter and a 1950's Santa sticker...
Last summer I ran across a bag full of antique paper doilies at a garage sale. For $5.00 I bought about 50+ doillies. I was so excited to add them to my art studio. I knew they would work great on candle holders because it had the holes to let the light out. I used them to decorate my altered bottles as well.

this one is darling...I used a sants cup cake topper on the cap and made the neck look like the chimney, next I used some black drawer liner co frame itut up as the roof. I had an antique xmas card of a fire place and I used the doilie to frame it.
