Balloon Bowls

Today I am going to show you different techniques to make some really pretty bowls. You can use them all over the house.
The first one I am making is a Glitter Bowl.
I had all my supplies I would need all set up outside….
Here’s what you’ll need for the glitter balloon bowl:
  1. Balloon
  2. Glitter
  3. Scissors
  4. Glue or Mod Podge
  5. Paint brush
  6. Bowl
  7. Pin to pop!

I purchased this balloon pump years ago…..it is the easiest way I know to blowing up balloons!

So of course, I pumped up the balloon, tied it, then set in a bowl.

So of course…after getting everything outside and set up….all of a sudden it started getting very breezy. It flew over to the neighbors yard…. So if it happens to you…just keep the balloon in bowl by adding a little tape to the sides:

I brushed on the mod podge, then added the glitter! The wind started up again….ugh! Glitter now blew into the wind, and it’s everywhere. Now a smarter way of doing this would have been to add the glitter to the mod podge. At least I thought of that before you tried this project! After the glitter was on…I added mod podge to the top of the glitter..now let it dry.

You can use confetti from paper or tissue paper. Just cut up small pieces.

You can trim the edges after it has dried with a pair of scissors to make the edges look as you like.

Here is another confetti bowl, this time with hearts….

Yarn Bowl

Put the mod podge in a small bowl. Add yarn in one long strand, and be sure to soak it really good.

Wrap the yarn on top of the balloon in a open swirl pattern:

    1. Learn by my mistakes…I liked the mod podge better than using elmers white glue…the glue dripped. It was fun! You can do this with kids…have fun and let me know if you try any. I would love to see.

      1. I saw it, thank you. I’ll need to think about it. It might not seem like a big job to you, but for me it’s a huge project. My husband is very handy, but he is preoccupied with getting the boat in shape right now. We’ll see…

  1. I love this and I am partial to the yarn bowel. Wouldn’t that be gorges at Christmas with the yarn that has the silver and gold threads.
    I can’t wait to start making some, I want to make one with the leaves, love it. Thanks kelley, you are the best.

      1. Well, basically I think you spray the balloon with cooking oil, then you melt chocolate. When the chocolate is melted dip the water balloon in it, and set on a cookie sheet.
        They actually turned out pretty well for us!
