This DIY lace bowl makes the perfect fruit basket, a key & trinket holder, or just as room decor. Luckily, they’re so easy to make- you’ll have a lace bowl for every purpose… and then some. (Gift idea, anyone?!)



  1. Combine the sugar and water and stir.
  2. Bring mixture to a boil. Place mixture in microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  3. Give the mixture a quick stir and mix up any sugar that may have settled on the bottom.
  4. Immerse the doily into the mixture.  Use a spoon to make sure it’s completely saturated.
  5. Remove the doily and squeeze out any excess liquid and place it on your mold.  An upside-down bowl works best.
  6. Make sure the fabric is nice and smooth on the surface of your bowl.
  7. Place bowl in oven at 225° for 20 minutes to set. **Only put 100% cotton in oven.**
  8. Once done, let bowl cool and then remove doily. Ta da!
