Making a Lighted Christmas Bowl

These bowls are so very easy and fast to make and beautiful when lighted. Very few tools are needed. You can use a number of different colors. I think it gives your decorations a bit of elegance! Most important, everything comes from the Dollar Store!



  • 1 glass 8" round (fish bowl)
  • 1 bag bags of each color you want to use, of clear glass gems, flat sided
  • 1 bag faux snow
  • glue gun
  • glue sticks


  1. Set out all the items you will need.
  2. Start by putting only a dot of hot glue on the glass gem flat side and start gluing around the top edge. Alternating each color. Continue this until the bowl is covered.
  3. Using a flat surface and a mat under the work. Open the package of snow and pour some into a wide bowl.
  4. Using the glue gun, glue around the rim of the bowl, then turn upside down into the bowl of snow turning it a bit. Making sure it is well coated.
  5. Then put a line of glue around the rim of the bottom, and put into the snow.
  6. Then take the glue gun and put a bit of glue in each little space between the gems and quickly sprinkle some snow over the sides. Do one side at a time!
  7. Put a battery operated tea light inside and it glows just beautifully!
