The Better Homes and Gardens Creative Crafts and Stitchery book I found at the $1 bookstore in Long Beach is full of creative inspiration. While my version of the doily applique craft isn’t quite as amazing as their version, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out–a cheap and fun wall hanging for the girl’s room.
Old canvas wall hanging found at a garage sale, spray paint (2 colors), a piece of old lace, a set of doily coasters, lace remnants, removable adhesive spray, glue.
-Spray paint canvas with background color
-Once canvas is dry, use removable adhesive spray to stick lace onto canvas (spray lace, not canvas).
-Spray paint canvas with second color. Once dry, peel off lace.
-Position and glue on lace stems and leaves to canvas
-Glue crochet coasters at end of stems on canvas.
