8. Glue navy blue teeth and jacket teeth to each side of the straight zipper — and inside the curving zipper. Cut off the extra teeth (Image 1).
9. Fill in the bare spaces with white zipper teeth (Image 2).
10. On the outside of the bowl, glue six white rows of zipper teeth. Glue a row of jacket zipper teeth next to the last white row. Cut off the extra teeth and secure the ends by pressing the teeth to the wooden bowl. Repeat this process with one row of navy blue teeth and one more row of jacket teeth. Continue gluing rows of white teeth to the outside of the bowl until the bottom edge is covered. Leave the bottom of the bowl uncovered. Let dry.
11. Place the fruit inside the zipper bowl.
Use painter's tape and glazes of various colors to create a design for a decorative sculpted bowl.
