A Doily Bowl with Mod hodgepodge Stiffy
I used doilies from the dollar bin and Mod hodgepodge Stiffy in this unique doily-bowl project! You can with each size doily. Scroll down to get to the bottom of the post, a video, and see how it’s done!
I’ll admit, I was a little scared of the Mod-hodgepodge Stiffy. It was the great yarn ball incident of 2010. But I also know something that I’m not the perfect craftsman . . . and there’s plenty of user error “in hur.” I decided I needed to give him another chance with a doily-bowl.
And let me tell you, friends, it’s not difficult to utilize – and now I want to hee to stiff everything (tea)! Just take a look at my doily bowl tutorial below, and you’ll see how easy it is. You can stiffen all sorts of things with the same method. If you are to make a visual, such as doily bowls, there’s also a video at the end!
Mod hodgepodge Stiffy Doily-Bowl
Collect These Supplies
- Doily, any size – I have to make from the $1 Michaels bins
Mod hodgepodge Stiffy
aluminium foil or cling film (or both)
Real bowl a little larger than the bowl size you want to
Small plastic container
Here are the shells that I used. I figured that with the larger bowl I was able to make a doily bowl without a lip (the pink doily), and the smaller bowl, which might I add is the lip (the yellow doily). I wasn’t know exactly what that meant, but it was my idea.
Next step is the cover of the real cups with aluminum foil – and make sure you cover the whole thing so that you don’t get a Stiffy on their shells.
Then, press the Mod-hodgepodge Stiffy in your plastic bowl. Make sure there is enough to coat all your doilies. You don’t have to go overboard.
This is the fun part! Add your doily to the Stiffy and to smoosh it – don’t you love getting your hands dirty? Take it out of the Stiffy and squeeze out the excess.
Spread your doily on the tray, so that you can be sure that you have it in the middle. You wash your hands now.
I used plastic foil to cover the cooking sheet, that I the shells. You can either with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. The Mod-hodgepodge Stiffy won’t stick to it.
Here’s how I left it to dry. You can see that the yellow overlaps I have the bowl a little, so I put it to a little lip. Leave overnight to dry. And then in the morning . . .
you’ll have to peel real Stiffy from doilies! These were pretty hard rock and might even hold candy. I was thrilled shells like my doily -. What should I next Stiffy? I can’t wait to start my next project!
