Skill: Super Easy
Time: about 5 Minutes to make + 10 or so minutes to dry
Makes: 1 Dollar Tree Slow Feeder Dog Bowl

Supplies needed to make slow feeder

Supplies Needed:

  • Epoxy or E6000 (e6000 does take a little longer to dry)
  • 1 Large Plastic Dog Dish
  • 1 Small No Spill Dog Dish
  • Wood Craft Stick
  • Paper Plate or Something Else To Mix Epoxy On

How To Make This Bowl:

Add glue to plate

Cut the tip off the ends of the epoxy using a razor knife. Then push the plunger to squeeze some out on a paper plate. Make sure it comes out evenly as you need equal amounts of each tube for it to work right. You will need about a quarter-size dot amount of each side.

mix glue with craft stick

Using the craft stick or a like object, mix the two liquids together really well.

Spread glue on the bottom of no tip dish

Then use the craft stick to spread the mixture all over the bottom of the small no-tip dish.

Flip small bowl into large bowl

The last thing you need to do is flip the no-tip dish over and place it in the inside center of the large dish.

Then set it aside and allow it to fully dry before using. I wanted to have a little weight on my while it dried, so I weighted it down with a jar of spaghetti sauce in the center of the no-tip dish.

Questions Frequently Asked:

We often get some questions that pop up from readers. So we will be covering the most frequently asked questions about this Dollar Tree Slow Feeder Dog Bowl right here.

That way it will save you the time of having to ask yourself. Well, unless you have a question we have not covered it yet.

Is The Glue Safe Around Food?
While we are not a vet nor a chemical expert, we feel it is safe to use around the food. That is because the glue never even comes in contact with the food.

The glue/epoxy is only under the bottom of the no-tip dish. The pebbles of the food only stay on the outside edge of the dish or in the bowl of it.

So by the two never coming in contact with each other, we feel it is pretty safe and have had no issues. However, if it bothers you, this may not be the dish for you and there are other options you can use.

Yield: 1 Bowl
