Add some colourful fabric, pieces of lace, doilies and whatever strikes your fancy to plain glass jars. I really like the idea of using them to store knitting needles.

jenny haas suggestion is that you make a bunch of these cute little embroidery hoops and have your bridesmaids carry them down the aisle, but i reckon this would look lovely as wall décor.
and if one can find a really tiny hoop, it’d look great as a necklace, right?
there’s no tutorial, indeed (see below), but as she said, they were probably glued together. if you want something a bit more permanent, you may try using screws or something like this, but i guess it’d be too time-consuming.

These are thrifted doilies in embroidery hoops. They’ve been glued together to make this huge piece. I wish there was a tutorial for it because this is amazing!
an easy diy idea. just dye a doily or piece of lace and sew/glue it to your jeans shorts.
i thought i had a tutorial for something similar somewhere here in this tumblr, but i couldn’t find it. you know the one i’m talking about, right? that in which one should use a balloon to shape the circle.
edit: i’ve found this tutorial on instructables that, while not being the one i saw some time ago, may be used to achieve this effect.
edit 2: i found the one i was thinking about, this one, but it’s a doily one. same principles should be aplied when using only string and it’ll probably hold much better.
i know i’ve said that before, but maybe i could use lace on this one instead of doilies
just as a sidenote: i never come across doilies anywhere and making them is out of the question, that’s why i always think about replacing one with the other.

super pretty idea for covering old wire/plastic hangers. i think it’d look pretty good if made with lace instead of doilies, what y’all think?
cute! maybe a more delicate doily will look even better, right?
i really, really like this idea, but am not sure about how long this will last in pristine condition. and what about cleaning? how should one go about cleaning such a delicate item?

this bowl with a doily impression is quite beautiful. i usually suck at this kind of craft, but i really want to give it a try.
