I also made something to decorate my home. I thought I could use some of those doilies my mother kept hidden in her closets -she didn't like them much either. She was very surprised when I asked her to bring me some.
When I emptied the bag, I was thinking of what I could make with them. Then I remembered of that wall in my dining room which is quite empty and decided to make a wall hanging to decorate it.
I boiled equal quantities of sugar and water
and after the syrup cooled down, I completely soaked the doilies in it,
then I laid them on baking paper and waited with patience for them to get dry .
The method proved to be very effective, it stiffened the doilies without altering their appearance. Moreover, if you change your mind, all you have to do is wash the doilies and they return to their previous situation.
