This super easy, super cute craft was featured in the February 2009 issue of Martha Stewart. Give it a try, you’ll certainly find a few spots in your home that could use a Valentine’s Day touch.
You’ll need paper napkins. The red ones are left over from Christmas. I purchased the pink ones at Walmart for $1.50 a pack.
Now for how to make these cute heart doilies.
Place the folded corner towards you. Fold one side over to the other side.
Next fold the side that you see under my fingers above back to the middle.
Cut an arc for the top of the heart and then cut again at the bottom of the napkin for the bottom of the heart.
Open the napkin to reveal your creation!

I used mine to create a display on my kitchen counter.
The vase on the end was given to my grandmother in the hospital when she had her first baby, my dad, in 1940. Granny labeled everything so that we would know the history behind her treasures. Her note was inside the vase. I’ll always keep it there.
I decorated my “coffee station” with a red heart doily. The green and tan platter was one of Granny’s wedding shower gifts.
I’ll bet that you can think of a lot of creative uses for a heart doily. Please share them with me if you do!
