How to make a decoupage bowl
The art of decoupage is well known across the world and is thought to have originated from Siberia, made by Nomadic tribes using felt. During the 12th century China used the process to decorate lanterns, windows and other items, then in the 17th and 18th centuries Italy became famous for it, combining it with techniques such as gold leaf and carved wood. The process can be used for covering chairs, draws, hangers, and bangles – the list is endless!
This is a quick and easy project to make, and it’s suitable for little ones to try on summer holiday (with assistance). We’ve made this decoupage bowl from Liberty Lifestyle prints Newbury and Mackintosh. Using your favourite prints (a larger print works better) cut out the shapes you would like to use and layer them onto the rounded end of an inflated balloon using PVA or mod podge to make a bowl shape, then finish with varnish if preferred. This project is ideal for making a set of bowls to decorate a coffee table.
