DIY wedding ring bowl
This romantic ring bowl with lace pattern and a little heart is perfect for a rustic country wedding.
If you want, you can add your initials to the FIMO using a stamp. There is a jute cord to secure the rings to the bowl, to make sure they don‘t get lost on the way to the altar. The bowl looks especially pretty if you add a sprig of gypsophila, pushing it under the cord.

Cut a piece of FIMOair light about 7 cm wide. Store the remaining FIMOair in an airtight container, for example a screw top jar.
Then roll out the FIMOair to a thickness of about 0.8 cm using the acrylic roller.
Place a small wooden heart and a crocheted or lace doily on the FIMO and roll over them with the acrylic roller to create a pattern.
Alternatively you can use stamps to add letters. Remove the heart and the doily.
Place a small china bowl with a diameter of approx. 8-10 cm on the FIMO sheet and cut round it using the blade.
Remove the FIMOair sheet carefully from the surface it is on, place it on the plate and press down gently so that the FIMO takes on the plate’s rounded form.
Create two holes 0.5 cm from the edge using a straw. Now place the bowl, along with a glass of cold water, in the microwave and harden for 10 minutes at 600 watts, or leave to air dry for 24 hours.
Important: When hardening in the microwave it is essential to include a glass of cold water.
Finally thread a jute cord through the holds and attach the rings with a bow.
