Stiffened Doilies


This project calls for textile, paper, and glassine doilies. You can find them at crafts stores and flea markets. As is the case with snowflakes, variety is welcome.

Stiffened Doilies How-To

1. Lay textile doilies on a covered surface. With a foam brush or roller, coat both sides of doilies with undiluted fabric stiffener until just saturated. Let dry overnight.

2. Press with an iron. Hang from thread or monofilament.

    I can't believe I never thought about doing this before! I love the look of <A HREF="">Vintage Christmas Decorations</A> and this will be perfect for giving my home that antique/vintage look this year! Thanks you for the idea! I too will be snatching up all the small doilies I can find.

    while they were drying I sprinkled one side with fine glitter and they just dance in the windows, especially in the day time

    I also found that using small suction cups (the kind used for hanging christmas lights ) make hanging them in windows SO easy
