By now, you all must have realised that I love doilies. I have pictures up the top on the banner of this page, down the side as blog buttons & my house is full of them. I love to dye them all fantastic bright & funky colours. I have just dyed my first batch of paper doilies!
I love them!
It was so super easy. You just need food colouring, water, gloves & a shallow dish that is a little bigger than your doily.
The brighter you make the colour, the better your doily will look.
Just put the food colouring & some water (about 1cm deep) in the shallow dish & mix well.
Make sure you use gloves other wise you will end up covered in food colouring!
Dip the doily into the colour & gently push it down so it is all covered.
Place the doily gently onto a tray that is covered with a paper towel. Let sit for 10 seconds then carefully urn it over just to soak up any excess water.
Place on a cookie cooling rack until completely dry.
Make sure you have a baking tray under the racks to catch any excess dye.
These beautiful paper doilies are going to come in handing for so many uses!
The possibilities are endless!
