Doilies are so beautiful, so unique and nearly nonexistent these days. That is why it's so wonderful to find them at antique shops, especially when there are so many gorgeous crafts you can make with them.
I am obsessed with DIY rugs. It's incredibly difficult to make a rug that is durable, provides some cushioning, is cheap and easy to make, and looks good. This rope and pom pom rug gets the gold medal in each category.
