Snow day crafting with my boys.....
My 7 year old constantly asks if he can get a fish or a turtle of some sort. My answer, every time.....NO! Sounds a bit harsh, huh? Well, we have been down this road before. It was my bright idea to get them a beta fish about 2 years ago. How did it go, you ask? TERRIBLE! Caring for that fish was a headache and I was the ONLY one doing it. Changing the water, alone, was a song and a dance. So, I made an executive decision and that fish had to go *in my Kevin Hart voice* LOL! So, to meet somewhere in the middle, I decided to create this Fish Bowl Night Light. Who says I don't know how to compromise? : )
|What you will need: Fish bowl, tank or vase|
Elmer's glue, water, paintbrushes, tissue paper, green paint, a sheet of white construction paper, string of lights and lei for the top of the bowl (optional)
|Prep you bowl by washing it clean and drying, completely. Tear about 3 inch pieces of tissue paper and crumble.|
|Carefully open up tissue paper. This creates a nice crinkle effect.|
|Next, mix 2 parts glue to one part water. Use your paintbrush to paint on a thin layer of glue.|
