If your having a vintage wedding your are going to love this idea! A lovely and modern way to enjoy vintage doilies all over again.
- Lace Cloth Doilies
- Fabric Stiffener (used Plaid)
Ceramic, plastic or metal bowls all work for this, just choose one according to the shape you’re after. You can try draping it over a few to see how it’s going to look.
- Elevate your upturned bowl and place something tall like a tin or a jar underneath. That way it can hang freely.
- Working over newspaper, use a brush to saturate the entire doily with the stiffener. This is important, make sure you get plenty on.
- Leave it to drip and dry overnight then gently lift it away from the bowl underneath.
Much like a hat, your new bowl will be fairly pliable but will hold it’s shape well. Keep it dry and if it’s for someone special, present it in a box to prevent from crushing.
