I have seen these darling jewelry bowls available for sale on some of my favorite flash sale sites like Jane or Groupdealz, but when I found these little gold china bowls at Home Goods the other day I figured it would be crazy simple to just make a set for myself. And, since they came in a four-pack, I had enough to make one for Christy and one for Terry, too.

This was such a quick and easy project–and seriously they make a great personalized gift idea for just a few $ each.

I imposed on Christy to cut some gold vinyl monograms with her Silhouette vinyl cutter. {This is the vinyl we used FYI, in gold, of course}.  She was able to use the same monograms from our favorite black and white totes from the Haven Conference.  She mailed them to me and all I had to do was attach them to the center of the bowl–Voila! (If you’d like to see the the tutorial on the round monogram, be sure to subscribe to our email updates {here} so you’ll get an email when it’s posted in the next few weeks).

UPDATE:  See the tutorial on how to create round monograms here, or if you don’t have a vinyl cutter, you can purchase them in our ETSY Shop.

It’s always nice to have a pretty place to store jewelry but mine also might migrate over to my desk to store office supplies. Or maybe I will just make another set for that purpose?

I think they would make wonderful bridesmaid gifts or shower favors–or a thoughtful present for a newly engaged bride-to-be to hold her new ring–the possibilities are endless.

I am off to visit Christy–so excited for some time with her in Savannah–and {spoiler alert} I am sure you can guess what her hostess present will be.

Also, we’ve found {round} and {square} white bowls at Taget for $1.99 each that are perfect for this project, in case you can’t find any at Home Goods.

  1. Wow…what a great idea…that Silhouette is truly fabulous…Those bowls are beautiful…

  2. This is one of the best projects. The problem is …. I need a really detailed step by step on everything. Help! Is there a place to buy the monograms ? Tell me more about the Silhouette. I am a novice !!!!!

    • Thanks! The best place to start to learn would be the Silhouette website, the link to it is on our sidebar. Making the monogram was a combination of using a monogram app and then importing it to use with the Silhouette Cameo vinyl cutter. Christy is going to do a tutorial here soon!

  3. Well, that came out nicely! Such amazing ingenuity! I think this came out better than most jewelry bowls that you can buy. A lot more special too.

  4. did you use the matte or glossy vinyl for these?

  5. Did you seal these in any way? Just wondering if the vinyl will lift at all?

    • Hi Jessica–I did not, but since they really are for display I didn’t worry too much about it. They have held up really well! I don’t know if they would be as durable for another use though.
      Thanks!
      Amy
