If you want to learn how to make doily bowls, this tutorial will show you how to do it using doilies from the dollar bin and Mod Podge Stiffy.
About a year ago I found a bunch of colorful doilies in the dollar bin at Michaels. I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with them at the time – in fact, I thought I might use them on canvases.
I bought a bunch of them and then never put them on canvas . . . so upon recent assessment of my craft supply bin, I realized it was time to either use them or lose them. So I grabbed some Mod Podge Stiffy and decided to use one to make a doily bowl.
Then I made more than one! Learn how it’s done below. Oh, and if you want to see a video – I’ve embedded one at the bottom. Check that out too!
How to Make Doily Bowls
Gather These Supplies
- Doilies – any size, any color
- Mod Podge Stiffy
- Aluminum foil or plastic wrap (or both)
- Real bowls a little larger than the bowl size you want to make
- Small plastic container
Pour some Mod Podge Stiffy into your plastic container. You don’t need a ton – just enough to saturate your doilies.
Place your doilies in the container and smoosh them around to cover with Mod Podge Stiffy.
Pry your doily bowl off of the mold. You’ll be surprised that you have REAL bowls! That hold candy and stuff. I’m going to try this with doilies of various sizes – AND think about the containers you could use that would make different shapes. So cool.
