DIY Wednesday: Lace Doily Bowl

Okay. Saw this tutorial, and couldn't wait until Wednesday rolled around so I could post it. Shout out to the ladies at the Free People Blog for thinking of such an awesome DIY. I have been looking for the perfect "catch-all" dish for my rings and other random novelties and these bowls are absolutely adorable! 

What you need: 
-Doilies (can be ordered on this website)
-Fabric stiffener
-Bowl (need one that allows you to drape the doily over the bottom to create a bowl shape)
**If you have a bowl and doilies already and don’t want to purchase fabric stiffener, you can make your own! Just mix equal parts white glue and water.

 This DIY is as easy as 1,2,3: Turn your bowl upside down, soak the doily in fabric stiffener, and drape the doily on the bottom of the bowl.

 Use your fingers to smooth the doily over the bowl, removing any wrinkles and pushing out excess fabric stiffener. Leave it on the bowl overnight to allow it to dry and harden.

 Experiment with different shapes and sizes! In the morning, your lace bowls will be ready for use.

 And you're done. Adorable, right?!
