What we need:

  • Paper Doilies
  • Watercolors
  • Brushes
  • Water
  • Magazines or books for flattening painted doilies
  • String  (approx. 5 feet long)
  • Scissors
  • Glue Dots

How to do:

  1. GATHER: Gather materials.
  2. PAINT: Choose desired color palate and paint on doilies. No need to paint perfectly; differences in color saturation/brush direction give added pizzazz! Go ahead and paint all of your doilies now, so the rest of the project is smooth sailing.
  3. DRY: Let paint dry.
  4. FLATTEN: During drying process, doilies can morph in shape. Place dry doilies in between magazines to help flatten.
  5. FOLD: Fold doilies in half.
  6. SECURE: Prepare to secure sides of doilies with adhesive.
  7. STRING:  Gather the string of your choice. Place the string in the middle of the flat doily. Fold doily in half around string, pressing sides together to create a hold with the adhesive applied in previous step.
  8. HANG: Now you are ready to hang your Watercolor Doily Pennant Banner for all of your guests to enjoy.
