I want to make my own stiffener or starch type liquid for stiffining snowflakes and other things. I want to be able to spray it though. Is there any sort of household items I can use, or mix together? I don't really feel like buying one, if I could just make my own!

I've used a strong mixture of sugar and water before.  I didn't use it on yarn, however, only on smaller pieces done in crochet thread.  As soon as you're done spraying it, make sure you rinse out your nozzle and squirting contraption so you can use it again.

Now don't even get me started on the sugar/water hairspray experiment I did when I was 8....   Embarrassed

beeosh is right, i did this this weekend with yarn ornaments. white glue & water will do the trick. just put it in an old spray bottle or buy one specifically for this, be sure to rinse the whole thing when you're done. better yet, just dip them, in the mixture and hang them to dry overnight.
