Doily Flower Wall Art Craft

Doilies aren’t just for serving desserts anymore. Their pretty lace patterns are perfect for decorating, and on your wall, they make fanciful flowers. Add some green tape for stems and leaves, and your room becomes a garden of colorful creativity.

What you'll need

  • Doilies in two sizes (e.g., 14” and 8”)
  • Acrylic paint
  • Spray adhesive
  • Green masking tape, 1” wide

How to make it

Doily Flower Wall Art step 1

1. Starting with the larger doily, paint the outer part that has the lace pattern. It’s easiest to dab some paint on a sponge, and then apply the sponge to the doily.

2. Then paint the outer part of the smaller doily a different color.

3. Using some spray adhesive, glue the smaller doily on top of the larger doily. You can also use glue, double-sided tape or a glue stick.

4. Apply spray adhesive on the back of the doily flower and press on the wall. The lace part of the flower will not stick easily on the wall, but that’s okay. As long as the center of the flower stays on the wall, you’re fine.
