Patriotic Doily Banner {My Version}

There are so many great ideas for 4th of July decor in blogland, but the minute I saw THIS BANNER from The Scrap Shoppe, I just HAD to have one!  I don't own a Silhouette, so I had to figure out another way to make mine.  This is what I came up with:

I feel more patriotic every time I look at it!

Want to make one for yourself?  Here's what you'll need:

**White Doilies (I used 4", 6", and 8")
**Royal Blue & Red spray paint
**Mod Podge
**string, yarn, ribbon (something to string them together)

Spray paint the 8" doilies red, and the 4" doilies blue (mine needed 2 coats of spray paint).  Once they're dry, cut them in half and Mod Podge the 3 layers together.  Be extra gentle as you spread the mod podge on the doilies...they are delicate!  When the Mod Podge is dry, string your yarn, ribbon, etc. through the holes in the doilies and hang up!  Easy peasy!!

Have a happy, and SAFE Independence Day weekend!!

I loved this, but was too lazy to go to the store and buy some doilies. Here is my post about what I made, inspired by you!
