Materials Needed:

  • wallpaper
  • bowls
  • scissors
  • measuring tape
  • pencil
  • wallpaper paste

Step 1

Measure a plastic bowl’s height.

Step 2

Cut the wallpaper into 1-inch-wide strips that are 1 inch longer than the bowl’s height. (We used 68 strips for the larger bowl above, which is 5 inches tall.)

Step 3

Starting on the outside of the bowl, use wallpaper paste to attach the strips, overlapping them slightly and folding the ends over the rim as you go. Repeat on the inside, but trim the strips so they don’t fold over.

Step 4

Cut circles out of the wallpaper. Paste them on the bottom of the bowl (both inside and outside). Keep in mind that the bowl won’t be food-safe.
