Isn’t it funny how when you’re a teenager, all you want to do is get out of the house and have fun with your friends? Now, my idea of fun is ice cream … on the couch … with a movie … by myself. Sometimes I just need some “me time” and a cheesy, chick-flick movie and some ice cream is how I like to relax. So I thought I would make some fun DIY Painted Ice Cream Bowls to celebrate “me time” and I’m showing you how below! Aren’t they cute? Sometimes you just have to have your own ice cream bowl that no one else uses. It’s the little things in life. And that Häagen-Dazs® Butter Pecan ice cream? Delicious and so creamy!
- oven-safe white bowl
- 3-4 paint colors
- foam brush
- small paint brush
- rubbing alcohol
- painter’s tape
- 2 pints of Häagen-Dazs® ice cream
First, prep the outside of your bowl by wiping it with rubbing alcohol. Then use your painter’s tape to tape off a pattern. It can be anything you want – vertical stripes, horizontal stripes, triangles, etc., just make sure the tape is tightly adhered on the edges so the paint doesn’t bleed underneath. Next, use your foam paint brush to daub on your paint colors. If you want to paint on a small design, use your small paint brush. Dots, lines, and cross-hatches are some great, but easy designs that you can do!When you’re done painting, carefully peel off the painter’s tape, then bake your painted oven-safe bowl in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F to cure the paint. (Hand wash only.) Ta-da! All ready for ice cream!
