Last week I made some mini bowls using little dolies and fabric stiffener and they turned out really well.
So I decided to try something else : making an etagere out of stiffened doilies. I am pleased with the result so here is my how to for it.
What you will need :
Two stiffened mini doilies. It is best if one is bigger than the other but you can use two that are the same size as well.
One earring post ( thingy at the top right)
Two of the cup shaped things that come with the earring posts to keep everything in place.
Piece of wire with a loop at one end.
Earring post goes through center of doily.
Cup shaped thingy goes on the post to keep doily in place.
Second cup thingy goes on the post too but upside down. The post is now hidden.
Still wobbly but taking shape. Second doily on top of the cup thingies and then the wire goes through the top doily into the whole of the top cup to keep it all in place. A bit of glue might help too.
Looking much better now , right ?
Add some cakes to finish !
