Misty: I found this idea on the Oh! Crafts blog, via Pinterest.
Terre Cotta pot, with base
Wooden dolls and pins
A round bubble bowl
Instead of spray painting my bubble gum machine, I decided to cover it in a collage of papers from Foreign text for mixed media art and collage. Also instead of using the wooden doll for the handle on the lid I used a little wooden knob I found in the Its All Gravy, Baby! Brown Mixed Media Color Kit. Then I added aqua punchinella around the pot with Mod Podge.
Unfortunately, because of the shape of the pot, I couldn’t put the punchinella on very evenly. In the end, after the Mod Podge had already dried, I decided I didn’t like the way the punchinella looked and tried ripping it off. Of course, since it was glued on it wouldn’t come off entirely and left a layer of the punchinella behind. Luckily, I kind of like the way it looked and decided not to cover it.
From there, I misted the lid and base with color. Then added trim and gems around the pot, both came from the green with envy color kit. From that same kit I also added some black and green metallic looking flowers towards the top of the pot. Then to top it off I added gold beads from the banana hammock yellow kit, around the lid.
My kids absolutely love these and luckily, they are a lot of fun to make. This particular one holds my son’s betta fish! Unfortunately, he didn’t like having his picture taken so he’s a little hard to see!
That looks like such a fun project!
Unfortunately, we’re received news that the fabulous fish bowl might have finally been too fabulous for the family fish. Guess he just couldn’t take all that sparkle.
