Here is what I did-
I decided to stain the doilies for color instead of painting my canvas. I made hot tea and let the doilies soak in it for about an hour until I got them the color that I wanted. (You can also use coffee, berries, Kool-Aid, etc. depending on the color you want.) Rinse and air dry the doilies. I cut one into fourths for my art.
Paint Mod Podge onto the back of each doily and arrange them how you like onto your canvas. I coated them pretty well so I let it dry overnight. That's it!
I really like how they turned out!
