Spring Bunnies DIY Gumball Machine Craft


Turn some dollar store mini flower pots and candy jars into these adorable "gumball machines" for your Easter or Spring decor!
Start with empty round candy jars and mini terra cotta pots.
Paint the pots, jar lids, and wooden knobs in colors of your choice.
Put floral moss and foam bunnies inside the jar, and seal it up.
Glue the glass jar to the bottom of the flower pot. For tips on, and a link to, the BEST glue to use for fastening glass and terra cotta, please visit my blog post right here. Hot glue will not work for this part.
Add some ribbon and enjoy your adorable new bunny gumball machine!

    These make cute gumball machines, too. Just buy a round jar, glue a knob on top, paint the knob & the flowerpot gloss red & fill the jar with gum.
