Real fish bowls are a hassle to maintain! Create this easy glitter fish bowl with 6 simple supplies and 6 simple steps!

Step 1: What You'll Need

Picture of What You'll Need
  • 1 pack of cotton balls (optional)
  • 1 "fish bowl" candy jar
  • 1 pack of assorted artificial rocks
  • Water (I used 1 liter)

Place the stickers on the inside sides of the jar, except for the front facing side. Remember to press them against the sides to secure them.

Pour in as much glitter you'd like. I used half of each packet shown.

If you used too much glitter, no worries! Use a cotton ball to soak up some of the glitter at the surface.

Close the lid and enjoy! :)
