Seeing that we are too old to have plastic toy soldiers around the house these days, this plastic army man bowl is the perfect way to show our appreciation for one of our favorite childhood toys.
The bowl is made up entirely of plastic soldiers that have been melted together. The bottom pieces have been exposed to heat quite a bit more than the top to create more of a rounded bowl shape, but as you move up along the sides most of the soldiers have retained their original shape. To ensure there is no leftover plastic residue, the bowl has been washed with a mild soap solution once it was assembled. Each piece is handmade using three different colors, and can be picked up now from Etsy.
