DIY Bowls

I absolutely love raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc. and eat them like candy (…although, I will say, New Mexico is sadly lacking in the berry quality department).  In the summer, I love having a little dish of berries out for a grab-and-go treat, and I found some perfect little white bowls for cheap ($1.99 each) at Target that I decided to spice up a bit.



What you need:
- White porcelain bowls
- Oil-based Sharpie permanent markers

How to (I found these on Pinterest as inspiration):
1.  Wash and dry your bowls before decorating.
2.  Using an oil-based Sharpie, decorate your bowl as you please (normal Sharpies will not stay on through the dish washer).
3.  After you finish decorating your bowls, bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.


This DIY is super easy, and really quite fun!  

And you can make anything, not just a bowl.  I made a mug using the same method awhile back, and my hubby (claims) that he still uses it at work every day!
