Make your own bright, beautiful rainbow bowl!
You Will Need:
- tissue paper in rainbow colours
- plastic wrap
- Mod Podge (preferable) or watered down white glue
- bowls (any size, you decide)
To begin, wrap your bowls with plastic wrap.

Cut your tissue paper into smallish squares, and rectangle shapes. Don't be too fussy, they don't have to be perfect shapes.
Brush one side of your tissue paper with Mod Podge (or your watered downwhite glue).
Start layering it, Mod Podge side up (the Mod Podge will keep it all stuck together). Keep brushing it on and layering your tissue paper.
You will be overlapping your colours a bit. Make sure the entire bowl is coated thoroughly with a thin layer of Mod Podge.
When complete, it should look something like this:
Leave them to dry for at least 24 hours. When they are completely dry, take a butter knife and carefully run it on the underside
of your bowl and it should pop right off. (On the off chance it tears in any place, it can be quickly repaired by adding a little extra
tissue paper and Mod Podge—it's a very forgiving craft.)
Now fill them up with something fabulous and enjoy!
