How to Make a DIY Doily Cake Dome

Use the hot glue gun to attach a wooden knob to the top.

Active Time: 20 min
Total Time: 1 day


  • Large mixing bowl
  • Plastic wrap
  • 17" crocheted doily
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Medium mixing bowl
  • Mod Podge Matte
  • Small bowl
  • Foam paint brush
  • Wooden knob


1. Place a large mixing bowl upside down on a protected work surface and cover it with plastic wrap. Drape the crocheted doily over the bottom of the bowl.

2. Use your fingers to pinch the doily together to form four triangles, cut each triangle off (work from top to bottom). Hot-glue the cut edges of the doily back together to form a dome shape; let dry.
3. Pour Mod Podge into a medium mixing bowl. Submerge the doily in the Mod Podge, making sure the fibers are completely saturated. Squeeze out any excess, then return the doily to the bottom of the upside down large mixing bowl; let dry overnight.

4. Pour excess Mod Podge back into the bottle and clean out the bowl.

4. Use a sponge paintbrush to apply another coat of Mod Podge to the doily; let dry completely. Repeat until the doily is firm to the touch.

5. Remove the hardened doily from the bowl and carefully peel away and discard the plastic wrap. Use the hot glue gun to attach a wooden knob to the top.
