Pretty Colored Doilies

5 Mar

I decided to experiment last weekend with some pastel colored doilies a la Martha Stewart and I’m totally in love. These are all small 4-inch doilies that I plan on using as gift tags. However, I have another project in mind so I purchased these and you may be seeing more soon!

Does anyone have a favorite color? I thought mine might be the purple since the pink looked more red when they first came out. However, now I can’t decide between any of them!

    did you use coated doilies or uncoated doilies? for the pink, i’m assuming you used red food coloring?

      Hi Kate – I believe they’re all uncoated. The ones pictured in this post were just from the baking section at Michael’s. I used these – – in a later post and don’t see anything on the website that mentions coating. They certainly didn’t have any kind of coating that I noticed!

      And yes, the water dilutes the colors quite a bit so the pink ones were just red food coloring.

      Hope that helps!
