What do you do with a bunch of doilies?

I have been collecting doilies...
a lot of doilies...
a whole big bunch doilies...I enlisted friends and family in this search...
An older lady at one of the thrift stores I stop in a couple times a month while on my  search  calls me her "doily lady". She would ask me how many I had found...I have no clue, I had never counted. I just knew I was going to need a lot for all the project ideas I had. 

I finally got the time to work on a banner/garland for my Darling Daughter...
I hung the doily banner on the front window at my house to take these photos. The window in her house is much larger than mine, so I draped the ends on either side of my window, then pulled up on parts of it to create some swags.
I created scrunchy bows out of crinkled seem binding ribbon and placed one between each doily on the banner...
DD hung her  banner up on her window, looks pretty good. Now I need t come up with some other creative ideas for all those doilies...yes, I'm still collecting.
