Kid's Craft- Watercolor Doilies for Valentines' Day

Valentine Watercolor Doilies- ONE little MOMMA
I am a sucker for all things doily. I have used them on my living room pillows and just love any doily repurpose project. When I saw these paper heart doilies in the Target dollar section and I knew we could definitely find a craft for them at home.

While I worked on another project, I pulled out my watercolors and got Easton started painting them. He is used to tempera paint and had a hard time adjusting to using so much water and so little paint, but he did well. He also did NOT want to stick to my suggestion of reds, pinks and purples for Valentine’s Day so we went with it.

When Kesler woke up from his nap he took a turn with a few and I finished them off. The paint would have taken better to the back side of the paper doilies than the slightly glossy front, but it worked well enough. We let them dry on a cookie sheet in a reasonably flat manner.

Once they were dry I strung them through with a piece of twine to make a few banners for the house. We don’t have a lot in the way of Valentine’s Day d├ęcor, but these are definitely my style. They are a little rustic, homemade, and obviously great because they are doilies.

These would have been fun hung vertically in a doorway or a window too. Or just taped to a window. No matter how you display them, they are an inexpensive, easy, holiday craft to do with your kiddos (or yourself!)
