Easy Gift Idea: Silver-Rimmed Bowls

diy lyrics on canvas

This is a super-simple diy that makes for a very easy gift idea. All you need is a small ceramic bowl, a paintbrush, and any paint of your choosing. I prefer metallics for this project, because it gives the look of a gilt edge and adds just a little bit of bling. Who doesn’t need a bit of bling?

Just paint the inside and/or outside edge of your bowl, let dry, and voila! A delightful little way to collect rings, earrings, perfume vials, lip glosses and balms, hair accessories, bracelets, office supplies, or any number of other small, loose items. I filled this one with hair bands to give to my friend for her birthday. I also use one to corral perfume and lip balm on my dresser.

      It’s amazing what a little bit of metallic paint can do! I haven’t sealed these with anything, but they also don’t get much wear-and-tear if they’re used for holding jewelry, hair ties, lip balm, etc. I believe the instructions on the paint said it takes 21 days to cure, or you can pop them in the oven.
