How To Make Your Own Craft Stiffener

Craft stiffener is an excellent way to make your crafts retain a specific shape over time, especially crochet projects. You can either buy stiffener from a craft store or you can make your own from sugar and water. It's very easy. Simply mix together one part water and one part sugar in a small pot. Stir the sugar until it has completely dissolved. Next, bring the mixture to a boil and then remove it from the heat.

Allow the mixture to cool a little and then dip your crochet project in it. Remove it from the mixture and use paper towels to soak up the excess moisture. Use Styrofoam or plastic containers to help you mold it into the desired shape and allow it to dry. Your craft project will now hold that shape permanently.
