How to make your own twig bowl
duration: 0:0:34

The latest in home trends is all about organic shapes and nature-inspired. This twig bowl is a stylish nod to nature and the perfect place to keep your knick knacks.

You will need:

  • A packet of modelling clay (from art supply stores)
  • Resene testpots of Resene Cararra and Resene Gold Dust
  • Resene testpot brush
  • A plastic bowl
  • Baking paper
  • Knife and scissors 

Step one. Using the modelling clay, as per the packet instructions, roll several long ‘twigs’.

Step two. Place the plastic bowl upside down on some baking paper, then drape the ‘twigs’ over the bowl in a random star-like pattern.

Step three. Trim any long or unsightly ends. Leave the ‘twigs’ to dry.

Step four. Once it’s dry, turn the bowl right side up and paint all over with Resene Cararra. Leave to dry.

Step five. Paint the ends of the ‘twigs’ in Resene Gold Dust from the Resene Metallics and Special Effects range. Fill with chocolate eggs, and get ready for Easter.  

After Easter, use the twig bowl for as a holder for normal eggs, or as a holder for bits and pieces like keys etc.
