I love containers; boxes, jars, bowls, cans, bags, etc.  If it is designed to hold something, I love it!  The perfect gift isn’t what is in the container, as much as it is the container itself.  I recently made a pile of small doilies.  Only trouble was what to do with them.  Then someone showed me a picture of a bowl that had been made from a doily.  Brilliant!  I have since been turning all my small doilies into small bowls.  And this is how I did it.

Step 1:

1doily (make one, or buy one at the dollar store, or look for one on line, etc.)
White glue (any kind will do)
A bowl (about the size of the doily,)
Plastic wrap
Extra bowl
I have always wanted to know how to do this. I thought people used starch but not really sure. I have never tried to make one though. This is very pretty. How do they clean up? Can they be hand washed? Thanks for sharing and I hope you enjoy the holiday. <br>Sunshiine
If you hand wash it the glue comes out and you have to start over, especially if you use starch. Haven't kept it long enough to know. Just dust it with a white bristle brush.
