Art Deco Snack Bowls

So, at the Rogue Cthulhu Friday Night Speak Easy, at Con on the Cob, I wanted to decorate the room in an art deco style. I had just watched the Great Gatsby for inspiration, and I found some roaring 20's style decorations on eBay, but I didn't have the time or money for that, so I planned to make them myself. Unfortunately, time became a severely limiting factor and I only managed to get one art deco style decoration finished for the show.
These are large dark green salad bowls that I got at a local discount store for $1 each. I spray painted them with gloss black (on the outside only!) and then used aluminum foil tape (the kind used for furnace repair) to make a geometric line pattern on them. I kept the pattern very simple and easily repeatable. I made six of these and I used them as snack bowls and filled them with various kinds of chips and snacks. This was a very small touch that ultimately had next to no impact on the look of the room, but I thought it was a good idea.
