You can use bowls as decorations in a lot of beautiful ways. You can fill them with fruit, ornaments, and other cool stuff. They can even be used as decorations themselves. But finding a beautiful-looking bowl is not exactly easy. They can get pretty expensive, too.

These can double as a bowl and as decor.

There’s a leaf bowl that retails for $45 per piece. I don’t know about you but I won’t spend that much on a bowl. There’s an alternative, though. If you can’t – or won’t – buy one, then make one. Sounds good, right?

These beautiful bowls are made by pressing leaves into clay and can be used for everything from holding keys and jewelry to displaying fresh flowers.

These can double as a bowl and as a decor.

How to Make a DIY leaf bowl

This DIY leaf bowl is just as pretty but not as expensive. Plus, it’s easy to make, too!

All you’ll need is a few leaves, some glue, and a bowl or container to serve as a mold. Here’s a quick and easy tutorial on how to make your own leaf bowl:

1. Mould the Air drying clay

To mold the air-drying clay, start by breaking off a piece from the block. Knead the clay in your hands until it’s soft, then shape it into whatever you like.

2. Trace and cover

Add the leaf by laying the leaf on top of the molded clay. Trace the leaf on the molded clay, to create a unique shape and design. Cut the necessary sides of the clay.

Carefully place it in the bowl with clear plastic. Enclose the plastic to cover it up. Let it dry to harden.

3. Remove the leaf

Once dry. remove the leaf from the bowl with plastic. Be sure to do this gently, as you don’t want to damage your newly made clay impression.

4. Color them

To finish up, choose the color that you like, and paint your leaf bowls. Once you’re happy with your creation, set it aside to dry. You can display your leaf bowls around your home, or give them away as gifts.
