Do you have a dough bowl and are struggling with how to fill it? These step by step directions will take you from an empty bowl to one overflowing with spring and summer goodness!
I love my dough bowl today as much as the day that it arrived in the mail and I still get excited with all of the possibilities when I’m ready to fill it!
I was on the hunt for one for a long, long time. Sure, they’re easy to find, but finding one at a price that I was willing to pay was a whole ‘nother story. In addition to being budget friendly, I was on the lookout for one that was large, but not humongous and had a level bottom so that it wouldn’t tilt or fall over.
I had all sorts of visions of what I could do with it, but when it came time to actually fill it, fear stepped in and froze me right up. I couldn’t think of much else to do with it other than to fill it with twig and faux greenery orbs. I moved it from place to place in my house, with those same ole greenery and twig orbs in it. B-O-R-I-N-G!
Speaking of fear – why do we do that? Why do we get so scared that we freeze up and wind up doing nothing? If you have a cure for that, please share! When I was putting the finishing touches on my dining room makeover, I decided to chase fear away and just go for it. And you know what? It wasn’t so hard and scary after all.
But back to the dough bowl – I needed a spring centerpiece and I wanted one that would carry me right on through the summer, so keeping that in mind, I looked through my stash to see what I could find. I turned all of this stuff…..
…..into this! I played and messed around until I came up with a layered and texture filled arrangement that I loved.
All it took was a little time and patience on my part. And being in the right frame of mind helped too. This graphic will show you exactly how I put all of layers together and hopefully help you.
The “ingredients” in your dough bowl can easily be adjusted for the holiday or season. LESSON LEARNED: Don’t let fear and indecision freeze you!
