How To Make A Ticket Bowl

These ticket bowls are so adorable! Ticket bowls are great accessories for parties and they also make the best gifts. Best yet, you don't have to be a crafty person to make a ticket bowl, anyone can do it.

Here's how to make a ticket bowl:

You'll need to purchase rolls of tickets, which you can probably pick up locally, at Party City, or order online from, which links to Carnival Mart, a local store here in St. Louis with every party item imaginable.

We made our ticket bowls by simply pushing the ticket roll into bowl form. You can gently pull up the sides, and turn the ticket roll as you're working to be sure the shape is even. The tickets are wound into a roll so tightly that the bowl will stay on it's own, no glue is needed to hold it in place!

If you're interested in gifting these, you may want to add a layer or two of modge podge to laquer it. The spray works great for this! We kept things all natural and left off the spray so we wouldn't worry about the bowls being food safe for our popcorn.

You can find toppings scoops by Sucre Shop here.

Hope you enjoyed this ticket bowl DIY and run out to make some of your own. Stay turned to find out what else we planned for our outdoor movie night!
