DIY Rubber Snake Bowl Tutorial from Rain on a Tin Roof. As Rhonda at Dollar Store Crafts wrote, you are either going to love or hate this DIY – and I personally love it. If you don’t have a heat gun I believe heavy duty glue will also work. If you have spray paint and a heat gun/glue this is a $2 DIY using Dollar Store snakes.
