TUTORIAL - Bowls Made From Baby Rattles

I think its time for a manicure!
You will be amazed at how easy these bowls are to make.
It only takes a couple of seconds.
They are in pink or blue.
I only have pink but I do need some blue.
These bowls are made from the
Party Favors - Baby Rattles.
You can find them at thrift stores or online.
EBay carries them and so does some Party stores.
Just google Baby Rattles.
All kinds of them pop up.
But I only like these. I like these because of the simple
handle shapes.  You could probably find a use for
the little beads on the inside if you wanted to.
Sure you have seen these.
 Sorry, that I do not have a photo for this step.
Refer to the above photo.
This is how I did it.
I put my finger nail under the clear side and
pop out the little pink bowl.
Although you do have to keep in mind that
mine are old. I am not sure
how easy it would be to take apart if they were new.
However, I found that the bowl came away easily.
Just be careful not to chip it.
 Do you need some clear bowls.
All I did was take my finger nail and
put it close up to the edge of the clear bowl.
Then I snapped off the handle with
my finger nail. It was that quick!
All of these can be painted.
I like the faded pink color of these rattles. So I might
leave them like that.
They look shabby.
I have a lot of these little bowls so some of them will
get painted eventually.
Sorry this next photo is blurry.
A small package of 10 of these baby rattles will make
you 20 bowls.
I have not found a use for the little plastic handles yet.
Thank you for visiting me!
