Waterproofing Stiffened Crochet Items?

I made crochet doily globes and filled them with LED light strands. I want to use them in a bathroom with much humidity. How can I waterproof them?

I am assuming you are speaking of 'stiffened' crocheted globes?

You do not say what type of stiffening method you used with your globes so I do not think we can give you a 'sure to work' suggestion.


I would be very careful with spraying anything on these globes until you discuss your stiffening method as you may wind up with one gooey mess.

I have seen similar projects sprayed with different 'suggestions' and hence turned into a very 'sticky' ball and some turned 'moldy' in no time.

Perhaps you could experiment with some small crochet pieces stiffened with your method and see how they react.

You might also ask your question at a local craft sewing shop or even at Michael's or Jo Ann's.

Check your craft store for different waterproof sprays to see if any state using on similar projects.
