On the back side of the bowl, have your child rub the glue evenly all over until it’s covered the bowl.

Your child can press the tissue paper squares all over the paper bowl, slightly overlapping each piece.

A few of the overlapping spots may need a bit more glue, so have your child make dots or put a little on their finger and rub glue on any spots that are not wet or stuck down. Let it dry completely.

Cut a small hole into the top of the bowl, just large enough to fit the ribbon through. Take a piece of ribbon, about 18 inches long, fold it in half and stick both open ends through the hole. Knot it on the inside of the bowl. This will be the hanger.

Now cut 12 pieces of different color ribbons, about 1 yard each, and tie together in a knot at one end.

Tape the knot end inside the bowl where the other knot you tied earlier is. Make sure it is centered.
