Make your own adorable gumball machine!

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.

Product List:
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.


  1. Love this idea, I just pinned this the other day and really want to make one!! Love the colours you chose!!

  2. Your gumball machine is too cute...I love it...Great Job!

  4. I absolutely love this! What a rewarding project this would be for the kids. (I also love that you used peanut M&M's instead of gumballs!)


Thanks for stopping by the studio. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments or email me directly. :) ♥ ~Shar
