DIY Monogram Doily Tote

As promised in my DIY Ombre Heart Tote post I made an additional bag from the three pack that I purchased in the craft section of Walmart. Isn't it lovely! This time while I was perusing the craft department, I picked up a stack of paper doilies in the cake decorating section, as well as some cardboard stencils for $1 ( what a steal! ). 
I opted to use just my first initial for this monogram bag but you could use first middle and last or write a whole sentence for that matter! And this is a great, inexpensive and easy gift to make for the upcoming holidays, bridesmaid gifts, etc...go crazy!!
Lets begin:

Materials you will need:
  • Tote or bag of choice
  • Paper doily
  • Stencil
  • Paint brush
  • Paint

First prepare your paint. Then place your paper doily onto your bag. I placed mine over the corner of my bag but you could place yours in the center or opposite corner, be creative! 
Load your brush and dab the paint over the open holes of your doily being sure not to press too hard or apply too much paint and have it bleed. 
Once you have covered the exposed surface of your doily, pull it off and let dry(this will not take long). 
Next grab the stencil letter(s) you are using and place them in desired location on your bag and within your doily circle. Apply paint to brush and dab over stencil. 
Remove stencil and voila another great DIY bag idea and/or gift!
