These cute bowls cost less than $10 to make and only require two items! Plus, each bowl is completely customizable. You can also easily remove the stickers to change the words.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 ceramic white bowls
  • Stickers
  • Ribbon (optional — we didn't use it but it could look cute!)



Add stickers to bowl

Make sure your bowls are completely dry. Then, using your stickers, spell out your dog's name or the words “food” or “water."

We made one for our puppy Oscar and then one that said "food."

Add decorative accents

Add ribbon, flower accents or other stickers to give the bowls some personality. We picked up some cute hamburger and utensil stickers to add to each bowl.

When cleaning, be sure to hand-wash and hand-dry — a dishwasher will remove the stickers.
