Turn Doilies Into Luxurious Pendant Lighting

Turn Doilies Into Luxurious Pendant Lighting

By now, most of us have seen the pendant shades made from string. They're cool in their own right, but this idea takes things to the next level and eliminates the frustration of string sliding off. Doilies seem to be the perfect fit for this project and give a nod to the past and present at the same time.

Over at Dos Family there's been a lovely repurposing of doilies going on — and how often do you get to say that? The project is simply lovely as the small design and pattern of the doily give the final pendant shade a very luxurious and designer feel.

The idea is similar to the original tutorials we have seen for this style of craft where a doily is covered in wallpaper glue and laid on a balloon to dry. When finished, small strings hold it to a light cord which could easily house your favorite eco-friendly bulb.
