Making colourful bowls

First we chose our colours, then cut the tissue paper in small pieces, wrapped the bowls in clingfilm, and started gluing. We let them dry outside where it was warm and sunny and a few hours later… voi-lá: beautiful translucent bowls. This is a very simple and so satisfying project to do with little ones. Liliana went for a mixed colour approach where the fun was basically to paste the pieces of paper and paint them with the glue. Marta planned hers so that each area of the bowl had a different colour. Their bowls now reside on their bedside table holding a few treasures each. I was inspired by this post at A Little Slice of Life. Check it out for a more detailed tutorial.

Primeiro escolhemos as cores, depois cortamos o papel de seda em pedaços pequenos, revestimos as tigelas em filme e começamos a colar.  Colocamos as tigelas para secar lá fora onde o sol estava brilhando forte e algumas horas depois… voi-lá: dois lindos potinhos translúcidos. Liliana partiu para um estilo multicor onde a diversão foi basicamente colocar os papéis e passar cola. A Marta planejou o dela de modo que cada área do pote teve uma cor diferente. Os dois potes agora residem na mesa de cabeceira do quarto das meninas, cada um guardando seus preciosos tesouros. A minha inspiração foi esse post no A Little Slice of Life. Dá só uma olhada para um passo-a-passo mais completo.
