How can I repurpose punch bowls?

by Debbie
I don't know how it happened.. Maybe they self multiply. No one needs 4 of them. Any diy ideas with a punch bowl in the mix that does not include punch??? Thank you in advance. Know you won't let me down!!

    My son uses them for dog food & water bowls for my grand dogs!

    Fill one with fruit salad (or some other favorite food), take it to a pot luck wedding reception and leave the bowl and cups for the bride and groom as wedding gifts.

    I know what you mean with things in my house self multiplying. If they're simple glass bowls, they can be used as decorative bowls filled with anything from pine cones to fruit.

      I've done this and always goes over great, kinda elegant looking and a good size for large groups. Did one with angel food cake, chocolate pudding, chocolate syrup and coolwhip.

      Same for a 7 layer salad.

    Use it for large salads, or a fancy fruit bowl. Or can use for Triffles or large fancy puddings. I also use it when I'm canning or making jams. It's a big bowl and holds a lot of fruits or veggies that I'm preping, instead of a bunch of small bowls.

    It works great for a large salad.. or put a large Ivy plant in the middle, [in it's own pot of course]

    when I have a group of family it works great for chips or any kind of snacks.

      Hi Ginny, I usually use mixing bowls for those times ,( collect them). But for a fancier occasion that is a great idea. Thank you

      Hi Teresa, that is the most out of the box idea. Sounds fun. Thanks to all who have responded to my punch bowl dilemma. Unfortunately the punch bowls have been packed. We are on the move from Arizona back to Maine. I am sure the Maine birds will enjoy their new hang-out.

    Paint the inside so you don't see the dirt and use as a planter
