I'm guessing they are food safe. But we wouldn't be painting the inside of the bowl. The extra touch of that lace, colored/painted to decorate the bowl makes a sweet and vintage look. How cute if you are in charge of the bridal shower- put this on each table with those pastel butter mints with a silver spoon for serving. Yay!

These bowls would make an adorable and inexpensive gift for someone. They look very easy to make and still look like a substantive gift to give. Look forward to trying this out.

This is a perfect way to have really cute bowls without having to spend a bunch of money! My only questions would be how the lace would hold up when you need to wash them? Would that even be an issue?

@margiekins22 I would suggest only using these for display or for organizing non-food items. That way you can just wipe the inside out with a damp cloth. I imagine the lace may get damaged if you tried to submerge it in water. Hope that helps! -Kaylee, Editor of

Wow! This is a brilliant idea. I thought at first I needed to crochet those lace decoration on the bowl but no, they are ready-made lace that can be adorned on the side of the bowls. This is really good taste. Thanks for sharing.

pretty bowls.
