Button Bowl

Take a balloon. Glue on lots of buttons, we used a glue stick, (Tesco cheap version of Pritt stick).  Then, when you have the required shape cover all over in Craft Glue, PVA glue...again it can be cheap.

The secret here is to wait...and I mean a couple of days.  It doesn't dry and harden quickly...but it's worth the wait as my Grandson  was thrilled with the result!!!

Put balloon did deflate before it was popped, but by then it was all hard and we had our bowl.

    Very clever. Think I'd like to make it an easier way. Just by covering an existing bowl with buttons. Thanks for sharing . I like the idea very much
