Doily wall art the Easy way, On a budget!
I’ve been wanting to doily wall art for a long time, especially after I saw this doily art by my friend Jen. My only problem was that I was using didn’t have all the old doilies, and I want to didn’t, white. So I had to wait to get in the perfect situation, and it did!I have the colored doilies found in the $1 bin at Michaels last week. Then I found the perfect paper to match in the scrapbooking aisle. My doily art was born. Here’s how to decoupage your own.Crochet-wall-artCollect These Supplies12″ x 12″ screens$1 doiliesMod hodgepodge Satin and Mod patchwork fabric folkart paint – the sky is Blue, Turner’s-Yellow (or coordinating colors)Scrapbook paper – I used Making Memories spring paperCraft knife and matPaintbrush Here are the screens I use for my doily art. You can usually get a “two-fer” pack this reduced the price a little. Here are the doilies are. Are you looking for in these plastic 1 bags in the $section. Why I supplied pictures of my? I know don’t. The paper sheets were 12″ x 12″, the same size as the canvas. I wanted to take a little, so that you could see the color around the edges of the canvases, so I reduced to 11.5″ square. Set aside. Paint the edges of the canvases with your matched colors. Be more layers and allow to drylet Dump Mod-smorgasbord in the center of the screen. No, seriously!!! To want you’re going, a medium layer of Mod collection and it dries quickly, so that you can a lot of about it and start spreading. you have to work quickly, on your doily wall art, and get the corners well. Tip: you should probably use a larger brush. It will help you to smoother, faster. You put the paper down and smooth thoroughly – wipe out Mod hodgepodge that comes out of the edges.The canvas is very flexible, so I always turn the canvas over and smooth on the back as well. Let it dry for 15 – 20 minutes. Your doily wall art is also done on the way. Repeat with your second canvas. Decoupage over the edge of your paper; coat the sides of the canvas as well. Let them dry and then give a second coat. Let dry. I have my big Mod hodgepodge of fabric to add dots here and there on the doily. I didn’t coat the whole thing with the Mod-hodgepodge, just areas, especially around the edges as they curl. I put the doily on the canvas and then rolled it with my brayer to stick to it. You’ll find the Mod-hodgepodge through the doily, but don’t worry – it will dry clear. Do you allow your doily art - out to dry for a few hours before you hang. you Put your doily wall art in a special place. I love my new wall decor, and it’s perfect for the spring! The doily one came in pink or purple, so head to Michaels and get your doily.
doilies are’t just for sitting on the table under a teacup – turn them into doily wall art using Mod patchwork, scrapbook paper and canvases.
