Pearl and Doily Flowers

Lace Doily Flowers

These sweet and delicate flowers are simple to make. You will only need a few supplies and some dry time. They look pretty sitting solo on a table and stunning gathered as a bouquet. You could place them in a vase or gather them with a ribbon.

2. Saturate them with Mod Podge.

3. Create a tin foil drying shaped like a mini ghost.
4. Place the doily on the foil and allow to dry.

8. Twist the ends of the wire.
