Seasonal Snowflake DIY

Materials:
Doilies (these can easily be found at any craft or thrift store)
Embroidery hoops of a slightly smaller circumference than your doilies
Metallic gold or silver spray paint (or really any color you like!)
Ribbon or thread

1. Find a well-ventilated room or clean outdoor space and lay out your doilies on an old newspaper or sheet of paper.

2. Spray paint each doily and allow to dry before flipping them over and painting the other side.

3. Fasten your painted and dried doilies into the center of your embroidery hoops and string them up with ribbon! It’s that simple!
