Six Ways to Repurpose Your Dough Bowl

One of my favorite TLC products is our luxury dough bowl candle. It can fit in any space, from the living room, to the dining room, the bathroom, the bedroom, etc. and, in every room, brings such a warm glow that can make any moment so much cozier and more intimate. As more memories are made, the more the wax burns and eventually burns out, leaving many people to feel a sense of sadness when their dough bowl candle eventually is gone. It was there for so many memories, making the room smell amazing and bringing an essential sense of calm while the family gathered or while you took some Me Time for yourself.

No matter how you look at it, a favorite candle with a favorite scent burning out is like the end of an era. But just because your candle is gone does not mean the dough bowl has to go out with it. At TLC, we love having our candles be in reusable vessels and, much like our tins, our 3-wick and 5-wick dough bowls are perfect to be reused in any way you want… But we have a few favorites!

Because of how gorgeous our dough bowls are, the first idea we can give you is to use our dough bowls for just that, to be beautiful! Use it as your favorite home décor decoration piece on any table in your home. If you’re looking to elevate this idea, fill the dough bowl with your favorite seasonal decorations! Pumpkins in the fall, pinecones and pine branches in the winter, and flowers for the spring and summer!

Three other ways to reuse your dough bowl would be to fill it! Pile your favorite produce in it year-round! Who doesn’t love a good fruit bowl that the kids can grab from on their way out the door? Put it in your bedroom or bathroom and have it hold all of your daily jewelry or any of your essential skincare or perfume products! Keep it all right where you can see it so you never forget about a necklace or beauty step again! Finally, place it in any room in your home near a couch to hold all of your softest blankets! No need to get up and walk across the room for it! All of these things are something almost every household has so why not use something that adds to the beauty of your home in the process!

If you’re looking to use your dough bowl as something more functional, we saved our last two ideas for you! One way you can stay hands on with your dough bowl would be to fill it with plants! Whether you want to put tiny pots in it to keep everything separate or if you just want to fill the whole thing with soil for seedlings, your dough bowl will successfully hold it all! A plant we could definitely recommend for this would be any air plant, no dirt needed and just a few spritzes of water here and there to keep these babies alive and thriving in the sun! Our final idea as to how to reuse your dough bowl would be for what it was made for, dough! We know everybody learned to make bread in quarantine so why not keep those skills up when you have the perfect tool to make delicious bread!

Whether you find yourself watering plants in your dough bowl or simply use it as a decoration in your living room, enjoy your knew favorite go to bowl… And be sure to order another one to keep your home smelling amazing while your kneading dough!
