This is a super easy craft and an attractive way to display unusual collectibles.
I made the Ivy bowl to display crystals that Ed (my husband) and Anna found and gave to me from a hike in the woods. Ed brought the little prospector back from a conference out West and gave to me as a keep-sake for my shadow box. Anna had been sand painting and had some sand left over.
You see the result. I've had a lot of compliments on it. I also have a display of shells and sand dollars done in the same way. To keep dust out of the display, I placed a clean medium size cup lid (from a McDonalds cup) at the top of the bowl. I put the lid upside and it fits nicely in the neck of the bowl.
There are a lot of attractive ways of displaying unusual items. Just use your imagination.

You are so ingenious! I would never have thought of such a lovely way to display beautiful rocks and crystals! And to think up a way to keep them dust-free amazes me. Congrats on your ingenuity and keep up the good work. God bless you!
