I can’t get enough of doilies. In fact, when I travel, I’m always looking for them at various antique stores. I love how intricate the designs are. Well, here’s a great tutorial for taking doilies and making these beautiful bowls. I was actually shocked at how pretty these DIY doily bowls turned out.
Dyed DIY doily bowls supplies:
- Darice Doilies
- Various Colored Dyes
- Mod Podge Stiffy
- Glass Bowl
- Saran Wrap
- Paint Brush
Step 1: Prepare the dye. I found that these kits were great because I just had to add the water to the squeeze bottle. The kits also came with gloves. You could also use other dyes and prepare them in buckets, but these worked GREAT!Step 2: If you want more intense colors, squirt the dye directly onto the dry doily. If you want more of a pastel look, wet the doily with water, ring it out and then apply your dye.Step 3: Let the doilies dry.
Step 7. Let the doily dry and reapply the Modge Podge Stiffy with a paint brush. This might take a couple of applications.
Step 8: Remove the bowl and the Saran Wrap. Lay the doily over the bowl and let it dry thoroughly.
I’m over the moon about these DIY doily bowls. I Love how they turned out and I’m still shocked at how pretty they are. I also love how they look stacked too. I can’t wait to find the perfect spot for them now.
