Clearly, my dreams were crushed because #budgetlife, so instead I decided to finally make my own DIY footed display bowls out of some unassuming materials.
When we were in Miami in the Fall we wandered into the Perez Art Museum and my heart stopped when I fell in love with a gold-footed bowl…that was $250 for the small version.
You can also check this DIY Footed Serving Bowls for an additional layer of decor to your table.
Originally I was planning to make both of them a terrarium, but I had a few macarons laying around per usual, and they were just screaming to be displayed in them!
Now I’m torn on whether these should be serving bowls or terrariums, so I’ll let you decide…
Materials Needed to Make a DIY Footed Display Bowls
Sandtastik white sand (optional for terrarium styling)
Faux plants (optional for terrarium styling)
Large 7 inch glass terrarium (or this option)
Small 4.5 inch glass terrarium (or this option)
How To Make A DIY Footed Display Bowls
Step 1 — You can really use any size terrarium or cookie cutter base that you’d like, just make sure that the cookie cutter is slightly larger than the base of the glass terrarium so that it rests nicely inside.
Step 2 — Then all you have to do is spray paint the cookie cutter gold, let it dry, then fill and display your footed bowls!
So this is technically a DIY project with a bit of an identity crisis, but you get the idea right? These would be so cute as entertaining bowls or table centerpieces, don’t you think?!
It’s a perfect match with the mid-century vibe back to entertaining with this DIY Serving Tray!
So tell me, what do you think? Are they serving bowls or terrariums? I’m still on the fence and can’t seem to make up my mind.
But whichever you go for, I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.
