Vintage and newer crocheted lace pieces cut to about 15” long.
Pour a good amount of fabric stiffener into a wide cup and place the lace pieces inside. Wearing gloves, work the fabric stiffener into the lace until they are completely saturated. Spread the lace pieces out onto washable mats or wax paper and allow to dry.
While the lace is still very wet, flip the pieces every now and then and make sure that the liquid does not form “windows” in the lace holes.
Dry overnight then paint with acrylic or spray paint

DIY Recycle Hardcover or Softcover Books into Journals. Easy tutorial from Blue Velvet Chair here. *You need a grommet kit to do this as neatly as in the tutorial (and I always mention this is one of the tools I have), and if you feel guilty about cutting up books you can make yourself feel better by reading what happens to old books here.
