I really love these stitched doilies and think it's such a great way to upcycle these items that aren't always easy to do. These precise, symmetrical stitches are wonderful but I think random abstract stitches would make a nice contrast too. If you're looking for a good side-by-side project to do with the kids then this might be it and just think how great they will look displayed together for wall art! Found at Wholly Kao. P.S. If you don't happen to have any doilies on hand, then make a run to the thrift store!
It's always amazing how simple paper crafts can look so complicated. This paper planet tutorial at Babble Dabble Do will fascinate kids and adults with how easy they are to make and ooh and ahh at the spectacular results.
