The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament:
Print the Paper Circles Triangle Doily
Or, you can use a compass or other circular object as a template for the circles.
The diameter of the paper circles should be 1/2 inch less than one-half of the size of the paper doily.
For example, for this 4-inch doily, the circles are 1.5 inches in diameter. [4 divided by 2 minus .5]
Measure, draw and cut out six of the circles.
Center one of the circles over the 60° Angle on the pattern.
Fold up the arcs along the straight edges of the angle.
The result will be a triangular shape with one rounded edge.
Fold two arcs on each of the six circles.
Place glue on the outer side of an arc on one of the circles.
Place one arc of a second circle to the glue, matching the edges.
Continue gluing the arcs together until all six circles are connected and make a flower shape.
Cut a piece of ribbon 8 to 10 inches in length (just guess) to form the hanging loop.
Fold the ribbon in half.
Add glue to the ends of the ribbon.
Position the ribbon over the doily such that the ends will be hidden behind the circle shapes.
Place glue on the back of the circles shape and center over the doily.
Place glue on the decorative bead.
Position the bead over the center of the circles shape.
Gently press the glued portion of the bead to the middle of the shape.
