DIY Doily Wall Art

I saw a great tutorial in Molly Makes recently using embroidery hoops to make a really sweet bit of wall art. I'm definitely going to be trying it out when I have a bit of time and the materials, but for now I wanted to try out a really simple one using paper doilies. 

You will need: Paper doilies, craft knife, wrapping paper (I'm obsessed with this grass pattern from Tiger), glue/double sided tape. 

1// After you've decided which word you would like to make, draw and cut out your letters into the doilies with a craft knife. 

2// Cut circles of patterned paper to the same size as the solid part of the doilies (leaving the lacy part bare). 

3// Stick the paper on to the back of the doilies. I like to use double sided tape because glue is very messy and would probably cause the paper to warp. 

4// Use washi tape to fix your doilies up on the wall. 

This is a really easy little project - and probably not something that I'll be keeping up for ever - but definitely something I would do again for parties! 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend,

  2. Awesome! I've got a whole drawer full of doilies that I might have to do this to! =)

  3. I love these! It's neat to think of how different they could look depending on what pattern you choose!
    Hope you're well :) <3
