    Tack dollies onto pillows of sold colors.
    Great way of displaying ones made by loved ones.
    Lay the collars on top of lamp shades.

    I like the idea of putting one over the top of the lamp - adds a dressy/frilly touch.

    I took one that had a linen center and stitched it thru the middle into the top seam on the pillow...like a flap. The linen was stained on the part that I disposed of.

    I would not put anything like a crochet item over a lamp shade. They get hot and could cause a fire. Becareful

    I was thinking the same ... looks lovely, but a high risk!
