Glitter Fixes Everything
These glitter ring bowls are perfect for gifts, especially for Christmas. While they do take some time—most of that time is drying time—making them is incredibly easy, and the color + glitter combinations are endless! They are also small, so making and storing them for a few months won’t be too much of a hassle.

  • How to make a clay bowl. Glitter Ring Bowls - Step 1
    Step 1

    Flatten out clay to 1/4in using either your fingers or a rolling pin and cut it into a circle. Your fingers will give you an uneven surface, like above, while a rolling pin will make it smooth.

    This is where using the graduated cutters come in handy. To cut the circle, I used the largest cutter and to shape the bowl, I used the next size down. Place clay on top of the cutter and press it down gently until it becomes slightly concave.

    Bake your clay (inside the cutter) according to the directions on the package. Allow to cool completely.

    Paint and glitterfy (is that a word? It is now!)! I painted the bottoms with the porcelain paint and allowed it to dry for 24 hours. To add the glitter, I painted a thin layer of the glaze and then sprinkled the entire surface with glitter. Let dry and shake off excess glitter. Depending on your glitter, you may need multiple coats. If so, just add more glaze and sprinkle with glitter, allowing it to dry between coats. I used two full coats and a few small touchups on mine. Paint on one more thin layer of glaze (this will help keep the glitter from rubbing off), and bake according to directions. Let cool and start displaying your jewelry! Then make some more for the gifts you originally wanted to use these for.
