I am interested in making and hanging a crochet doily in my large front window. Does anyone know a good way to hang it?
Thanks a bunch!
I have hung dolies on my painted walls by using spray starch on them, first starch the dolies with A LOT of starch (follow directions on the can), they need to be somewhat stiff, then spray the side that is going to be against the wall/glass, but do not iron this application of starch, it should be tacky enough to stick...........good luck!
i'm no expert but i hung a really pretty piece of lace that i doubled over a dowel i attached at the top of the doorway - i hot glued a round drawer pull at one end & was lucky to find a set of plastic rod ends cheap shaped with nice leaves & put one on the other end & painted it all a nice crisp green --
it was one of my better "piddelings" !
I have one that I purchased and it is placed between two sheets of glass with lead run around the outside to keep the two pieces together. A small chain has been soddered to the corner. It hangs with the pointy edge top center. Looks beautiful!
I have hung doilies by purchasing a brass ring or hoop the size of the doily, and then whipstitching the doily to the ring/hoop using clear fishing line. Nobody sees the fishing line and the hoop can be suspended anyplace you want by making a hanging loop with the fishing line. Has worked very well for me for tatted, netted, crocheted, and knit doilies. Good luck!
