Hello, creative friends! Valentine’s day is right around the corner, and whether you plan to celebrate with a special someone or your best girlfriends, I have a super fun party backdrop idea for you! Paper doilies are really inexpensive, and can easily be layered to create a dimensional display with some serious wow factor. These doily flowers take just a few minutes to make, and can be left plain white, or dyed with just a little ink or watered down craft paint! Ready to get started??
Doily Flowers Backdrop Supplies:
- Darice Paper Doilies 10.5″, 8.5″, 5.5″, 4.5″
- Darice Scissors
- Adhesive Dots
- Darice Hot Glue Gun
- Darice Spray Mist Bottle*
*Tip: Order multiple spray mister bottles depending on how many colors you want to use. You can use watered down acrylic paint, ink pad refill ink, or shimmer spray in your bottle.
First, take a doily and crease the bottom 1/3 by gently creating a fold. Use your glue gun to adhere the folded area together. Repeat with two more doilies, and adhere them together on the sides.
Use your spray bottle to add color. The doily flowers will be delicate, so spray a thin coat of color. You can always repeat if needed once it is dry. Be careful not to over-spray and add too much moisture.
If you are serving cake or cupcakes, you can easily use the smallest 4.5″ doily to make a matching cake topper!
I hope your Valentine’s day is spent with the ones you love, and lots of happy crafting! Check out these other backdrop ideas for Valentine’s Day using crepe paper sheets.
