20 DIY Lace Projects

We say lace, and you think…? SO HIP, SO COOL, SO AMAZE. Okay, maybe not, but after seeing what ladies around the Interwebs are doing with that antique-looking fabric — from revamping a plain denim shirt and decorating pumpkins to designing bridal veils and creating super stylish bookends — that will indeed be your response. Get on these 20 DIY lace projects just as soon as you’ve made it to the bottom of this post.

1. Denim + Lace Shirt: Sure, you lurve your chambray shirt, but the same can be said for everyone else in the world. Set yourself apart by giving originality back with a little lace. (via A Beautiful Mess)

2. Lacy Planters: Lace-trimmed, cacti-filled planters — the concept is as awesome and versatile as the end result. Use them for bookshelves, party tablescapes and as a bday present for your bestie. (via Brit + Co)

3. Lace-Trimmed Scarf: Keep it cozy on cool fall days with a lovely lace-edged scarf that takes just 30 minutes to make. (via A Beautiful Mess)

4. Lace-Trimmed Shorts: With a pair of stylish boots plus a comfy pair of tights, you can rock shorts all through fall and maybe even winter. (via Brit + Co)

5. Lace-Adorned Pumpkins: Carving — ain’t nobody got time to deal with that mess anymore. No-carve pumpkins are the bomb, and these are especially fun because it’s like dressing up those big round ‘kins in lingerie. Umm, sexy? (via Honestly WTF)

6. Lace Hair Ribbons: Accessorize your braids or dress up a simple, chic bun. This tutorial features four lace-inspired hairstyles we love. (via A Beautiful Mess)

7. Crocheted Cake Dome: Keep bugs at bay and that counter-top-creeping kitty cat away with a cake stand topped with a crocheted dome. (via Daily Fix)

8. Lace Necklace: LACE OVERLOAD — there is no such thing. A lacy top looks all the more lovely when paired with our doily-inspired necklace. (via Brit + Co)

9. Lace Lamp: Create and display this using doilies and a balloon, and your friends will start to wonder if you’re the one behind all those jaw-dropping store displays at Anthropologie. (via Apartment Therapy)

10. Lace-Patterned Coffee Table: Give an old coffee table new life by using lace to create an original spray-painted pattern. (via A Beautiful Mess)

11. Lace Ballet Flats: The idea of stomping around for hours in high heels on your wedding day might sound less than appealing. Lace ballet flats are where it’s at. (via Once Wed)

12. Lace-Adorned Vases: Clear jars, black spray paint and lace trim make for totally unique vases you can display at your next fall party. (via Mod Podge Rocks)

13. Lace-Trimmed Veil: You’re already DIYing your invitations, favors and centerpieces, so go ahead and take on that lace-trimmed veil, too. (via Style Me Pretty)

14. Lace Doily Curtain: Deck out your boho abode by using white, ivory and cream-colored doilies to create a curtain that transcends anything your grandma has hanging in her windows. (via Free People Blog)

15. Lace Tambourines: Shake things up at your wedding reception by giving out handmade tambourines that guests can use as music-makers during your exit, then let them take them home as favors. (via Honestly WTF)

16. Lace Shirt Sleeves: You don’t have to be Stevie Nicks to rock lace sleeves. Go ahead and transform a classic tank into an ultra-feminine blouse. (via Love Maegan)

17. Lace-Trimmed Curtains: Take your curtains from plain Jane to plain amaze with the addition of a lace trim made from dyed table runners. (via Upcycled Treasures)

18. Lace Gift Wrap: Already got holiday gifting on the brain? Your presents will stand out when you wrap them with lace in addition to paper. (via A Beautiful Mess)

19. Lace CrownsParty hats are so passé. (via Rook No. 17)

20. Lace-Trimmed Dress: Did this just hop off of a hanger from Anthropologie? Nope, but it was inspired by a $300+ Anthropologie find and we have no doubt that it’s going to become your go-to for all those fall weddings you have coming up. (via Life is Beautiful)
