Yesterday I spent some time catching up on what some of you guys are working on. Donna from A More Green and Simple Life has been making bowls from magazines. I was so inspired to try making one myself. It almost looks too easy! Check out these fabulous instructions to see how simple the process is. All you need is a hot glue gun, and about half of an old magazine.
Well... disappointingly there is no hot glue gun here. I could certainly borrow a gun... but for some unexplained reason, time was of the essence... I wanted a bowl and I wanted it now! Patience is not one of my virtues.
So I grabbed my hook and some rags, and set about creating a different kind of recycled bowl.
First I worked a flat circle.
Then built up the edges, increasing just a little.
Kept building up the edges, and some more gentle increases.
Added some kitchen string for a cross stitch finish to the rim.
And in use...
