Glitter Bowl

Hi there! Today I'll be showing you how to make this awesome glitter bowl!

You will need the following supplies:
- Mod Podge, glossy
- Chunky Glitter (any color)
- Balloon
- Foam brush
- Jumbo craft stick

First, blow up your balloon to the size bowl you want to create.  Next, mix equal parts Mod Podge and glitter in a bowl using the craft stick.  You may want to add more glitter to get the mixture really thick. 

Use either a foam brush or the jumbo craft stick to apply the mixture to the balloon.  I preferred the craft stick because it was easier to pile it on.  It also helps to sit your balloon in a bowl as you work.  

The size/height of your bowl depends on  how much of the balloon you cover.  Make sure you apply a thick layer of the mixture.  You shouldn't be able to see the balloon through it.  Once you're done applying the glue mixture, set it aside to dry over night.  Keep in mind that the bowl will be flexible, it doesn't dry stiff.

Once it is good and dry you can pop your balloon and remove it from your bowl.  Now it's ready to be used! It makes a beautiful accent to a table or bookcase.  You can also use water balloons to make smaller bowls, perfect size for a desk or vanity.  

There you have it! I hope you enjoy your new, fabulous bowls and until next time, happy crafting!
