How To Make Decorative Trinket Bowls From Takeaway Containers
"Make decorative trinket bowls for your jewellery and loose change out of unused plastic takeaway containers. This is a fun decoupage craft with two methods to try. I used decorative wrapping paper for one and old newspaper and gold leaf for the other. Experiment with what you have in the house and make something truly personal to you. These make a lovely accent on a side table, dressing table or by an entryway. You can even make them in different shapes depending what types of plastic containers you have in your home to be upcycled."
