There is something so pretty and delicate about paper doilies isn’t there?
A little while back I saw some paper doily trees on Pinterest. I thought these would make some lovely Christmas trees.
They are pretty simple to make, and I think they look beautiful (even though they are a little wonky).
To make them you need:
Paper doilies – three different sizes work best
Hot glue gun
What to do:
First you need to cut each doily to the centre.
Use your glue stick to run a strip of glue down the side- next to your cut.
Pull the other side across the glue to form a little dome shape.
Do this with each of your doilies.
To thread them onto the skewers, place a dob of hot glue on the inside of each dome. – then push the skewer through. Start with the big one and work your way to the small one at the top.
**Tip – cut your skewer down to size before threading (much easier than after like I did)
Then glue your skewer into a cotton reel.
And your done!
How cute do they look?
I made one with double doilies too! (in the back of this photo) And I’ve set them up on my little corner table with some peg people.
Only 5 more trees left of my #25trees challenge! Thanks for stopping by!Hope you pop by to see the rest!
