In the Designer's Words: "Honor the Day of Mom with a very easy, very thrifty, very pretty DIY melted bead bowl. It's also very science experiment-y if you want to get the kids involved."
Making Mother’s Day crafts is a creative way to show mom you care. Some of these crafty cuties, however, are only cute for so long. While we like to think mom keeps everything we create her, adding clutter to her life isn’t exactly the goal. This is why decorative yet functional ideas are essential for creating the perfect DIY Mother’s Day gift. This Bead Bowl for Mom shows you how to melt your bead stash to make a lovely, faux glass bowl that mom can use to hold trinkets, jewelry, or mail.

Materials List

  • Craft beads
  • Oven proof bowl
  • Cooking spray


  1. Spray an oven proof bowl with cooking spray.

  2. Place beads inside bowl, pushing to bottom and sides. The cooking spray makes them stick.

  3. Place bowl in a pre-heated oven and cook for 15-20 minutes. If beads aren't completely melted, continue cooking and checking on it every few minutes.

  4. Let bowl cool completely.

  5. Twist bead bowl out of oven proof bowl. The cooking spray makes it greasy so clean with a wet paper towel.

  6. Use as a catch all, or turn it into a cute gift basket full of stuff for mom.
