A Handmade Gumball Machine

Here's a really fun and easy gift!  



Supplies needed:
  • Terracotta pot with base
  • Paint (spray paint OR acrylic paint)
  • Wooden knob
  • Glass fish bowl/vase
  • Hot glue gun

STEP 1:
Either using acrylic paint or spray paint, prepare your pot, base and wooden knob.  Set aside to dry.

STEP 2:
Using a hot glue gun, adhere the wooden knob to the bottom of the pot base.  Then adhere the glass bowl base to the base of the terracotta pot with your hot glue gun.  

STEP 3:
Fill your bowl with gumballs.  Then place "lid" on top of the glass bowl.


Keep for yourself to enjoy or...wrap it up and give it as a fun and thoughtful gift!
