DIY Decorative Glue Bowls

What you Need:

  • Wood Glue
  • Clear Glue
  • Balloons
  • Glitter
  • Resin gems

Activity Steps:

  1. Blow up balloon to the size you want the bowl to be. Restitution in something like a cup of bowl to stabilise.
  2. Mix wood glue with glitter and apply to your balloon with a paint brush, allowing each layer to dry completely before applying the next (roughly 3 layers).
  3. Once dry, apply 2 layers of Gorilla clear glue to strengthen the bowl and give it more shine.
  4. After 24 hours, remove the balloon and cut the bowl to shape.

For extra glam: Cut the bowls according to the drip lines and add some coloured gems.

Gorilla Glue products are used in this craft activity and are available at Bunnings, Mitre 10 and Spotlight stores nationally.
