How gorgeous are these moon trinket dishes that Meagan made? In our video tutorial below, we’ll show you how to form your dish using our template and a bowl. Then you’ll see how to add your watercolors with a waterbrush and blend them with a sponge to create a speckled effect that resembles the moon.
Make space for your trinkets
These moon trinket dishes are perfect for displaying jewelry or keeping something important in the same place, like your keys. You could also use them for hair accessories, office supplies, or anything small you want to keep organized. Another option is to just use it as home decor and place a small potted plant on it, like a succulent or air plant.
This is such a fun craft project to get creative with and a simple way to make something unique for your home. Be sure to share photos of your moon trinket dishes with us by posting to our Facebook page for members or by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram.
