Craft. Gumball Machine!

How cute is this??!!  I saw this on my new *favorite* website AndersRuff and just HAD to make one for my own!!

Here's what you need - I picked it all up from Michaels:

1) 10" clay pot
2) matching clay saucer
3) wooden "doll head"
4) spray paint
5) large glass fish bowl
6) hot glue

It was a beautiful day outside when I decided to do this - lucky me!  I was so excited to start I almost forgot to take pictures!  Hee hee.  I painted at least 2 coats on the clay and the doll head.  Once dry, I glued the doll head to the saucer and assembled - easy peasy!! 
Because I did not glue the fish bowl to the pot, I added some velcro for stability (I love that stuff!).  I also did not glue the top because I want to be able to add candy ;-)
Now all I need are the gumballs, jawbreakers, smarties - you name it, but it all sounds yummy.

Pin It!
