Paper Doilies dyed with food coloring

I saw this on another blog and decided to try it with my paper roses.  I got carried away and dyed the whole pack of doilies. It was so much fun, sort of like dying easter eggs, but they last a lot longer.  Im thinking some nesting shapes on top of them.  After dipping them in the solution of gel food coloring and water, i laid them to dry on a few paper towels.  When completely dry, i ironed them.  They really didn't need it though. A few of them were not as nice as i thought, there was only one doily, when actually there was two stuck together.

I dyed the swirl roses that was the other days freebie, but they arent completed as of yet.


  1. DOES remind you of Easter!!! They turned out AWESOME!!!

  2. They look great. I would like to try this. Are they paper?
