When you start the wall you need the little opening in the strips. You use the hot glue and tuck the next strip in the opening.

With each strip go up a little. If you go too low your bowl will just go wider. If you go too high it won't have very sturdy walls.

OPTIONAL. You can get a spray sealant, I have Mod Podge Clear Acrylic Sealer in matte. You just spray over it. I waited a few hours and resprayed. (10 times-I'm paranoid.) It'll just protect the bowl.
