Intro: Terra Cotta Pots?? - Gumball Machine Candy Jar
Isn't this a cute way to display chocolate? Or gumballs? Or __________? (insert your favorite candy here) This was a simple fun project. It would be a wonderful gift for any candy lover. Paint it any color and fill it with any thing to customize it to your liking. Here's how...
I copied the pic of the merry kiss mas jar,then changed it up a bit. so it wouldnt be so seasonal.
Step 1: You Will Need:
6" clay pot
6" clay saucer
5" clay saucer
glass bubble bowl
1 (one) Wooden Ball – 1 1/4″
1 (one) Tube E6000 Adhesive or epoxy
Step 2: To Get Started
Just paint all of the pieces (besides the glass bowl) your desired color. This would be fun for your kids to help you do.
Now just glue the pieces together. But do not glue the top piece to the bowl.The wood ball will be your handle to take off the lid . Now you can either paint words like "merry "kiss"mas" or you can modge podge a picture on there.I painted a piece of paper with gold acryllic paint with a very like light coat and then used a permanent marker to write "mommy loves kisses". LOL. It has two meanings because I would love the chocolate kisses or kisses from my beautiful kids. Then I modge podged it on. Voilla, cute.
