White crocheted doily, 4" - 6" diameter.
Small margarine container (empty)
Plastic wrap or sandwich bag
Christmas florals (optional)
Turn the margarine container upside down and cover with a plastic sandwich bag.
Pour the fabric stiffener into a bowl. Dip the doily into the bowl, saturating
it thoroughly. Wring out the excess back into the bowl.
NOTE: If you don't want to buy fabric stiffener, you can make your own by
boiling equal parts of sugar and water until the sugar is completely dissolved.
using liquid starch, OR mixing white glue with a little water
Drape the doily over the margarine container. Press down over the sides, but let
the edges flair out. Set on the wax paper and allow to dry overnight.
Thread the narrow ribbon in and out through the holes in the doily bowl. Leave
both ends on the outside and tie together into a bow.
If you want, glue a Christmas floral or other decoration to the side. Fill with
candy and enjoy!
