The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament:

Print the Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament pattern.

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.

Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament step 1 cut 6 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.

Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament step 2 fold two arcs

Fold two arcs on each of the six circles.

Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament step 3 fold arcs on all six circles

Begin gluing.

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.

Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament step 4 begin gluing arcs together

Continue gluing the arcs together until all six circles are connected and make a flower shape.

Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament step 5 glue all circles together

Cut a piece of ribbon 8 to 10 inches in length (just guess) to form the hanging loop.

Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament step 6 cut ribbon

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.

Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament step 7 glue ribbon to doily

Place glue on the back of the circles shape and center over the doily.

Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament step 8 glue circles to 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.

Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament step 9 glue bead to center of circles

The Paper Circles Triangle Doily Ornament is finished and ready to display.

Make one or many and have fun!
