Cut around the bottom of a paper plate and make this lovely doily

Whether you're hosting a luncheon or wanting to add class to your dining decor, doilies are a timeless option. Not only do they bring elegance to your space or event, but they're also appealing seasonal pieces for table settings. You don't need antique doilies for this project. Instead, it's easy to make your own.
The only materials you will need are ones you probably have already. If you don't have paint, order it online or grab some from a hobby store. Choose a color that represents the aesthetic you're trying to achieve; pastels are perfect for spring, while earth tones work better in the fall.
