I found this completely adorable gumball machine idea on Pinterest last week and thought what a sweet idea it is and just had to make it. Well wouldn't you know, this weekend the Pinterest Facebook page is sponsoring a Pinterest Weekend event where you choose something to make or create that you found on pinterest and share pics of your finished project with the group! I'm having a blast and have made three of my pins already! Woot! Go me. :) This is my favorite so far!
Here is the original link to see the one on pinterest.
Terra cotta plant pot and saucer
Glass dish from the Dollar Store
Styrofoam ball (she used a wooden bead but I didn't have one big enough)
Acrylic paints, ribbon, vinyl, fabric paint (I used that for the white dots on the lid)
I used vinyl for my flower/heart design but you can paint or stencil yours, whatever you like. Other than the circle, the rest of the shapes I cut by hand.
