What To Do With Old Doilies?


1. Lace Doily Bowls

Tanner Bell at A Little Craft in Your Day has shared a wonderful way to create lace bowls using doilies. All you need to do is to take a mixture of fabric stiffener and acrylic paints in a bowl, dip the doily in it and then put it over an inverted bowl. Let the doily rest there for about 24 hours and a beautiful cute little bowl will be ready.
