I love how you can make this with items you find at the thrift store. It looks so expensive!

This is gorgeous! I have a ton of doilies I've been collecting for my wedding. What a lovely way to reuse them afterward. Some of the doilies were my aunt's and grandmother's so it would be extra meaningful to reuse them for a project like this! Imagine seeing them in the living room every day-a happy reminder of family members no longer with us. Definitely adding this to my must-make-soon list. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm just in love with this idea.
