Gumdrop Machine Decoration or Party Centerpiece
This simple little project looks oh-so-cute and is super easy to make. A fishbowl, flower pot, markers, and candy is all it takes! You could even color coordinate the pot with your party's theme. It could even make a fun Halloween decoration with orange and black paint and a spiderweb draw on the lid with gummy worms inside! Use your imagination.
Total Time: 5 minutes
- one small fish bowl (or larger for a big centerpiece)
- one small flower pot with saucer ( or larger if you use a larger fish bowl)
- contact cement
- permanent marker
- a bead or ball if desired to glue on top
- Draw a faux opening, coin slot, and monetary amount on your flower pot with a permanent marker.
- Glue the fish bowl to the upside down flower pot and let dry according to your glue instructions. If gluing a bead on the lid, do so now and also let it dry.
- Place candy in the bowl and put the saucer on as a lid.
- I saw this at my local library and the pot was painted bright red, which was also super cute if you want it for a child's party or something.
- You can really add color and designs to give it any holiday theme and add the appropriate candy!
