Bubble Gum Machine Candy Dish

This would be a neat gift for anyone or a great conversation piece for your home or office. I purchased each piece for $1 or less at the local craft store.

  1. Take a 3 inch terra cotta pot and a 3 inch terra cotta saucer and paint them red (traditionally) or any other color you desire. Allow to dry. Make sure to paint both the inside and out of both pieces.

  2. Find a small glass bowl that the base will fit plumb with the bottom of the terra cotta pot. With hot glue or epoxy/silicone sealant, turn pot upside down and glue to the bottom of the glass bowl.

  3. If desired, you can paint (with black paint marker) a "hole" where the gum would come out of a real gumball machine.

  4. Fill with gumballs or other assorted candy and then place the painted saucer in the top of the bowl.

And there you have it. I made this for less than $5 and that includes the gumballs. Hope you enjoy!

This is adorable. I would have flipped the saucer upside down. Any reason I am missing for doing it right side up?
