Remember last year when I made some faux gumball machines out of terra cotta pots for my little ones Pink Princess Party?
Well I decided to make some again, but this time for her Teacher Valentine Gifts!
I love how easy these are to whip up, and they really aren't too pricey to make. Which is a good thing because my little one has three teachers!
Didn't they turn out SO cute?!
I love them!
I just painted the pots red and then my little one suggested adding polka dots! She has an eye for crafts I think because those polka dots just make these the cutest gift ever!
ETA: I saw on Pinterest a couple people commenting about the supply list to make these so I thought I would edit this post to include them.
I found all the supplies at Michaels
The bottom is a Terra cotta pot turned upside down.
The bowl is just a regular glass bowl
The top is the bottom plate for the pot turned upside down
The wood ball on top I found in the aisle by the wood dowels and stuff
I painted everything fist and then I put a thin coat of Mod Podge over it to act as a sealer (I didn't have any spray sealer on hand).
I glued the bowl to the upside down pot with E6000 glue and then glued the wood ball to the lid with E6000 glue as well.
And that's it! Wait for it to all dry and then fill with candy and put the lid on top!
I hope this clears up some of the confusion on how to make these! If anyone ever has questions on how I make anything on this blog, you can always email me at email@example.com!
After I painted them I did add a thin coat of Mod Podge to seal them. I usually would use a spray sealer, but I didn't have any on hand so Mod Podge it was. It worked perfectly though! And I use E6000 glue to glue everything together. Then I added a cute festive ribbon and called it a day!
I love how simple, easy and CUTE they are!
And my little one is so excited to give these to her teachers next week!
Now, time to tackle her classmate valentines!
