Step 1: Step 1: Gather All Materials

What you will need to make a homemade plastic organizer bowl are;

Couple thousand perler beads,
A glass bowl,
And cooking spray, (Pam works best)

Step 2: Step 2: Coating the Bowl

Get the Pam and spray the bowl. Then spread the oil around the whole surface of the bowl.

Step 3: Step 3: Laying Down the Beads

Now grab your favorite colored perler beads and mix together. You will need at least 3x the amount of beads in pic.1. Throw beads into your sprayed bowl and cover the whole inside surface like shown in pic.2&3&4. Make sure that all beads are even at the top so that you have an even bowl. Also make sure that all beads are evenly spread 1 bead thick, and that no beads are laying at the bottom of the bowl.

Step 4: Step 4: Baking Your Bowl

Now you can bake your bowl at 350* F. Bake for about 20-25min. Take out and let cool for 15min. Now you can stay organized with your bowls. You can use pretty much any size bowl if its glass. But baking times may vary.

    maybe, if you do double layers (try doing 2 bowls, 1 slightly bigger and melt them together)(if this does not work put wax paper inside)

    I made a bowl like this awhile back. I did rows of different colors and made sure they lined up... It was monotonous and took forever!
