You'll need enough doilies for the amount of bowls you want to make
All-purpose white glue
and some bowls to set the balloons in to keep them steady while you work
I have my balloons blown up to the size I need, you can gauge by the size of the doilies how big your balloons need to be. Set them each in a bowl to steady them
In a large bowl I poured 1/2 cup of glue and 1/2 cup of water
Mix them up until the glue is "dissolved"
Add a doily and get it completely soaked with the glue/water mixture
The glue would settle in all of the holes in the doily so when I lifted the doily up I gently blew on it to get the glue out of the holes, do this gently though, you'll get glue dripplets everywhere!
Gently lay your doily over the balloon, arranging the balloon how you want it to dry. I smoothed this one over the balloon to get all of the kinks out.
Now you just let them dry, I was worried about the bottom not being flat and that they wouldn't be able to sit up. Don't worry about it, once they are dry enough to take the balloon away you can scrunch them down to give them a flat bottom to sit. You don't have to wait for them to dry completely, but I left the balloons intact for 24 hours
Aren't they cute! I added some ribbon to them just to add a little something.
They are shallow, so the Easter Bunny can't put a whole lot into them, but I think these would be better used as little decor elements or party favors if you have guests for Easter dinner. The small ones would be adorable filled with a little grass and a few chocolates or jelly beans. Just set one on each person's plate and they will have a cute remembrance of their Easter visit!
I just added some real dried grass and some decorative eggs for the photos
So cute filled with a few Easter treats
