Lace Jars

Hi everyone,

Every now and then, dear De and I like to have a stitchy day.  We chat, eat, make stuff, and help each other get through life's challenges.  These days are always good for the soul.
A couple months back,  I spotted this photo on Connie's blog .  I showed it to De, and we decided to try making these instead of stitching that day.  (By the way, if you love pink, ruffles, roses, and all other things girly, plan to spend HOURS at Connie's blog :))

We both love to collect doilies from op shops, so that part was easy.  De had the glue, and I had some jars in the cupboards... We set things up on the deck at my house.
It was a fairly simple process..dilute the glue, drape the doily on the jar, paint on the glue, wait for it to dry.  Here they are drying, waiting for final decorating. I love recycling  :))


  1. Love your lace jars! Going to make some! But just gave all my big jars away for wedding decorations1 Will get more!

  5. Thanks Chris, I didn't think of it and I don't know who to credit the original picture too either, but it is a fantastic way to show off the op shop doily collection! debbie
