See how easy it is to create an Elevated Dip & Chip Bowl for your next party. This DIY project cost me $2 to make.
As I was making the final food list for our Christmas party, I decided that I did no have a decent way to serve the chips and guacamole. I do have this lovely bowl that I made in a pottery class several years ago, but it is on the small side. Good for veggies and dip, but kind of small for chips and guacamole or salsa.
I love the 3-tier serving stand that I made for our party a few years ago and thought I should do something similar. I was thinking I could get a large glass bowl, a candlestick, and a smaller glass bowl to create a bowl with the dip part elevated. There was some E6000 Glue from making the stand, so I just needed the glassware. I headed over to our local ReStore and found a simpler solution for under $2.
Make Your Own Dip & Chip Bowl
Instead of three pieces, I got a glass bowl and a martini glass for $1.91. That meant I only had to glue one thing. My hubby helped me put it together. He held the glass while I squirted the glue.
The glue has an odor, so we put the bowl together out in the garage. The glue instructions say it takes at least 24 hours to dry, but we gave it longer to make sure it was secure and for the smell to go away.
I am very pleased with how it turned out.
I did have to refill the glass once because I made a big batch of guacamole, but it was practically licked clean midway through the party. Several people commented on the cool bowl. While we do not host a lot of parties, I am very glad to have this unique serving piece.
- Glass Bowl
- Martini Glass
- E6000 Glue
- face mask
- flat heavy item
- Clean and dry your dishware.
- Read the instructions on the tube of E6000 glue and prep your area. We glued ours in the garage because the glue has a very strong smell. You can find E6000 tips here.
- Squirt a small amount of glue to the desired spot the bowl.
- Place the bottom of the glass onto the glue and hold in place for at least 2 minutes or until the glue begins to set.
- When the glue has begun to cure, carefully place a heavy item on top to apply even pressure.
Extra hands may be helpful for this project. My husband held the bowl still while I glued and placed the glass in place.
