Button Bowl Instructions
Step 1: Blow up and tie a balloon. Place the balloon, knot first, into a cup.
Step 2: Cover half of your balloon with an even coat of glue. Let the glue dry completely. Be sure that you use a clear drying glue such as Elmer’s or School Glue.

Step 3: Add a second coat of glue all the way down to the knot this time. Attach buttons on this layer, halfway down the balloon, as close as you can to each other. Now’s the time to let it dry which usually takes somewhere in the 4-5 hours range.
Step 4: Add another layer of glue over top of the buttons and let it dry. It should dry clear.
Step 5: Using scissors, cut the knot off the balloon to let the air out. Next, remove the balloon and cut off any glue bits from the button edge that you don’t want.
