We are going to make a DIY bowl light from scratch using two plastic bowls, one large and one small.
1. Stack the smaller bowl on top of the larger one
Start by flipping the bigger bowl upside down and centering the smaller bowl on top of it. The larger bowl I used was a bit uneven, which I didn't mind at all as I thought it added a bit of character.
2. Drill a hole through both bowls
The next step is to drill a hole in the center of both bowls.
Start with a small hole and then use a 3/4-inch drill bit to make a larger hole. Due to their plastic construction, my bowls were pretty easy to drill.
3. Prime bowls
It is necessary to coat the bowls with primer once the holes have been drilled.
4. Add texture to the bowls
When the bowls are dry, you want to add some texture to them. I started by combining acrylic paints from Behr in the colors Kalahari Sunset and Fresh Croissant. They combined to make a nice terracotta color.
I suggest choosing a color that suits your home's color palette.
I then mixed baking soda into the paint, a little at a time, to create a paste.
Using your paint paste, paint it in a horizontal direction all over the bowls, and then let it dry.
5. Connect both bowls
Once dry, you want to connect the two bowls together by threading a lightning cord through both
Next, you will use hot glue
6. Cover the seam
To cover up the seam on my bowl pendant light, I used a thin reed, but cord, twine, or anything thick will do.
