To make an Elizabethan Collar:
To allow an inexpensive paper doily to turn a plain white vase (or other color) with flowers a beautiful display:
- Remove the solid center from a six- to eight-inch doily by cutting in a circle with a sharp craft knife.
- Fold the remaining ring in half, to form a C shape.
- Starting at one end, accordion-fold the paper five or six times, making firm creases.
- Unbend the collar. Slip it over the neck of a vase and affix with double-sided tape.
