How to Make a Christmas Gift Bowl

Today I’m going to show you how to make a bowl perfect for a Christmas gift.  This bowl would make a special gift for your Mom, Grandma or Aunt this Christmas.  It will mean so much to them and they will surely treasure it for years to come.  You will simply take a plain glass or plastic bowl and use acrylic paint to paint a Christmas design on the front of the bowl.  This craft will be a lot of fun…. almost as fun as it will be to give it as a gift this Christmas.  So, let’s get started.
