I was decorating for 4th of July and had some patriotic hats I wanted to put in a bowl and then put on a sofa table. I didn't have enough to fill the bowl so I came up with a way to fill the bowl without buying more hats.
All you need is your bowl or vase and then a smaller bowl or cup.
I usually use a Princess House Trifle Bowl on the sofa table. So I chose a smaller clear bowl and turned it upside down and placed it inside the larger bowl. I used clear so that if there was any spaces it wouldn't be noticeable.
Then I took and filled the bowl with the hats--the bowl looked full without having to buy more. You can do this with any bowl or vase to save money!
