This footed bowl can be placed on a shelf to hold potpourri or hold a plant that spills over the side. We placed ours on our entry table to hold keys and sunglasses.

Start by applying some hot glue (or E6000) to the bottom of the glass

Then press the plastic bowl firmly on the top of the bottom of the glass.

I let mine dry for about an hour to make sure it was firmly on the glass.

You might want to add a little weight on top of the bowl in the center where the bowl and glass meet to get it to adhere better

Next apply 2 coats of the copper spray paint allowing time to dry in between.

I spray painted the bowl upside down and then flipped it over to paint the inside later.
