Welcome to day two of the donut celebration for National Donut Day! Today it’s all about donut bowls! Yes, you ready that right. Bowls painted like donuts. Now can enjoy a donut even when the only thing you are eating is a bowl of cereal or ice cream. Donuts for every meal. Thats the dream my friends!
Yum! It’s so much fun eating from these bowls!
Multi surface acrylic craft paint
Clear glass bowls
Oven for curing the paint
The great thing about this DIY is the it really is as simple as painting a bowl to look like a donut. The only trick is that you want to paint the underside of the bowl so that the top useable portion remains food safe. While the paint that I used is non-toxic, to avoid wear and the possibility of paint flaking off into the food, I painted the underside to make sure the inside of the bowl was completely safe to eat from!
That being the case, you have to start your donut with the sprinkles, then when that layer is dry, add on the frosting, and then the last step is to add the bread part of the donut.
Once you have painted all your layers and allowed the paint to dry overnight, set the bowls upside down in a cool oven, heat to 350ºF, bake for 30 minutes, turn off the oven, and let the bowls cool inside the oven. Once they are cool, they are ready to use and wash like normal. I just wouldn’t recommend putting them on the bottom rack of the dishwasher.
Now that you have your own set of tasty donut bowls, maybe you should whip up some of my donut sprinkles from last year and have yourself a big bowl of ice cream topped with donuts!
