DIY Faux Bells

Updated: Nov 10, 2023

I thoroughly enjoy crafting unique items, and it's even more exciting when I can transform inexpensive finds into something delightful, like these charming glass bowls!

For this project, gather these supplies:

  • Four small glass bowls (I found mine at The Dollar Store for only $1.25 for four).

  • E-6000 glue

  • Corn Starch

  • Acrylic or Chalk paint in your preferred colors (I chose Antique White and Brown).

  • Ribbon

  • Embellishments of your choice

  • Hot Glue

Here's the step-by-step process:

Step 1. Gluing the bowls together

Glue two bowls together using E-6000, allowing them to set overnight for a secure bond.

Make sure you let them dry completely.

Step 2. Mixing the Paint

Mix Antique White paint with approximately 1 tsp of Corn Starch for a thicker consistency, then apply a smooth coat to the glued bowls. Repeat with Brown paint on the other set.

I don't like it runny or too thick you want a nice smooth consistency.

I then applied a coat of it on the bowls .

I only needed to apply one coat of paint it covers really well .

I did the brown paint the same way .

Allow both sets to completely dry.

Step 3. Preparing lids for the top.

I painted the chosen lids (from spice containers, water bottles, or glitter bottles) with Brown paint.

I then painted them Brown and sprinkled Cinnamon on them while they were still wet .

I then sprinkled Cinnamon on while wet, and sealed them with Minwax Sealer.

You can stack them create the top .

Step 4. Using a little cornstarch.

Before adding ribbon, rub a bit of Corn Starch on the Brown bell for a pottery look.

Step 5. Adding embellishments .

I used black and white check ribbon to create a hanger and bows. I then added a thin coat of sealer, sprinkle some glitter while they were wet on both of the tops of the Bells.

Look how adorable your creation is turning out.!

I added artificial greenery for a finishing touch.

This project is quick, easy, and budget-friendly. The result? Beautiful faux bells that you can replicate. I repeated the process and fell in love with the outcome!

They are just beautiful!!

I just love how these Faux Bells came out !

I hope you decide to give them a try !
