I love to make this DIY Candy Holder and fill it with candy to give as an inexpensive Christmas gift! It can easily be used as a gumball “machine” or just as a candy jar. The sky is the limit. I think it would be fun for a kids party filled with all types of candy.
We love this fun and easy DIY Candy Jar. It could be decorated for any special occasion! This candy jar is so simple and inexpensive. You can find all of these items at the dollar store or local craft store. In fact I think you could give these as gifts for teachers filled with their favorite snack!
How To Make Your Own Gumball Machine:
- Spray Paint
- Terra Cotta Pot
- Terra Cotta Saucer
- Wooden Knob
- Glass Bowl
- Glue – e6000 (Industrial Strength works best – I bought it at Michael’s)
- Ribbon, optional
Spray paint the pot, saucer, and knob and allow to dry.
Glue the with e6000 (industrial strength adhesive) the vase onto the pot. You could decorate with ribbon if you want!
