Whether or not you are a lace maker, you likely have some tucked away in a drawer. Something found in a thrift shop? Something Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma made and much too treasured to toss, but something you simply can’t use laying on side tables? These bits of your history can become wall art and will mix with other more contemporary decor quite well. Look how a few bits of lace pop when mounted on bold colored backgrounds in this photo!
If you do wish to make your own, most yarn and thread companies offer free patterns on their websites and craft stores are full of them too. Bare walls? You don’t have to have bare walls just because you’re unwilling or unable to spend a lot of money on unique art. You likely have the makings for pretty and unique pieces right in your own home just the very minute. Take a minute and rummage about!
