DIY gift-giving {vintage lace doily monograms}

I just love handmade gifts.
{most of my friends & family know that b/c thats normally what they get}.
there is something about a handmade gift that more shows thought, love, & a 'lil elbow grease.

for under $10, these make great gifts.
{under $5 if all you need to purchase is the letter}.
i was lucky enough to receive a HUGE bag of vintage lace doilies from my mom.
Enjoy!





XOXO, 
Kate
