For Princess E's Sweet Shoppe birthday party I wanted to make a decoration I could use on a regular basis and this is what I came up with; a gumball machine candy dish.
This dish isn't just for gumballs, you can put any kind of candy in it.
The materials needed for this project are: a small terracotta pot and dish, a round vase, a door handle (we already had these living in a junk drawer), some hot glue and spray paint (I used spray paint we already had living in the garage).
To start, spray paint the the terracotta pot and dish.
As soon as the paint is dry go ahead and glue the vase onto the pot and glue the door handle onto the dish.
Once the glue has dried, fill the dish with your candy of choice. We filled ours with gumballs and gummy bears.
This was a fun and easy project, and for only around $3.00 each these little candy dishes really make a statement.
