Step 2: With the compass draw a bigger circle, about 8” diameter. If you don’t have a compass, just use a plate, a pot lid or anything round you have on hand.

I love the result, it really dresses up a table. I choose some fall colors but it will work for any season. Maybe a deep red for Christmas and a bright yellow for spring. I hope you enjoy it. See you next month for another DIY.
