Top Tip for Gold/Silver doillies..

Many of you know Leanne over at the NEW Top Tip Tuesday ch#1 blog
well she wants us crafters to share tips && theres prizes to be had..
on the NEW blog Lots of you peeps may already know this tip..
when I wanted a gold doily I didnt want to buy a whole pack of them &
white are much cheaper, rumaged thro some of daughters art stash she left
& found a tin of Gold Xmas spray..its prob from a £ store.. what do you
 have to loose but a doily?? I set to work covering the work top with plenty of
newspaper..   Just sprayed an even covering & there you have it one
Gold..or Silver doily ready for Xmas creations.. I'm sure you all use
your inks/chalks to colour coordinate your doillies!!
so now you can have sliver /gold very cheaply..
The picture below is before & after with the tin of spray I used..



So hop over go see Leannes fab tute on Paper Doily flowers..

Love this great idea, and such a great way to stretch the doilys, think of how many colors you could use for each one.
Thanks so much for joining in Top Tip Tuesday with us.

Fabulous idea. I never thought to use spray paint. Always did them with glimmer mists...Much less expensive to use spray paint. Thanks for the wonderful idea

Hi Christine :)

What a fab tip - that doily looks almost gold plated! I'd never have thought of spraying one with Gold or Silver (although come Christmas I'd spray the cat if he stood still long enough!)

Thanks for joining in with us for our first Top Tip Tuesday and good luck :)
