I have a love of old linens, lace, etc., and came up with a unique way to display them. I took a wire hanging basket and attached lace around each basket. I then filled each with pretty linens, old gloves, and more lace. I then hung it up and draped more lace from the hook. Finally I found a crystal which I wired to the bottom to complete the look.
The picture isn't very good, but hopefully it will inspire you!
Buy some beautiful lace placemats or cut some from an old lace panel or from an old curtain. Lay out a piece of clear contact paper and cut it a little larger than the lace. Slowly peel the backing off the clear contact paper and adhere the lace. Now lay on some dried flowers or old pictures and ribbons and cover with another piece of contact paper.

Here are questions related to Crafts Using Old Lace.
I have a Mother of the Bride's dress that I will not wear again. It is ivory colored with an overlay of beautiful open lace over the bodice. I would like to take the lace and "recycle" the lace bodice into a craft that would be a unique addition to my decor. Any suggestions?
