Make a Paper Heart Doily

Paper doily00 

Wishes are the mother of invention. I was looking at my coffee table wishing I had a doily  with hearts on it. Of course that got me thinking and I came up with my own. I used the brown roofing paper (see I love that suff!! any hardware store should have big rolls of it). My original plan was this would just be the pattern and I would make one from oil-cloth (white with red poke-a-dots) but life is too crazy and that is NOT going to happen (I am lucky to get this post written). Actually I love the paper one. Really the sky is the limit, wrapping paper would be sweet too. It isoo easy, anyone can make one. Enjoy!!!

1 trace a circle


2 cut out a heart and mark on each side of the heart where you want it to sit on the circle

3 trace around the part of the heart above the circle. Using a ruler to help you, now trace a heart on the other side of the circle. Do this until, you get the desired effect you want.

Sweet! I think I'll cut a heart doily today!
Does the pretty plate magically appear after you cut a heart doily?



I love this simple project! It's cold & yucky here today so I think this is an awesome activity to do with the kids. Lisa
