DIY Valentine’s Day Gumball Machine

Valentine’s Day is almost here and I am all about the DIY projects! Everyone was posting about the infamous gumball machine at Target and I knew I just had to create my own! Follow the steps below to create your own unique gumball machine for Valentine’s Day!



  1. Paint the clay pot and clay saucer the color of your choice. I used Apple Barrel Pink Blush and Apple Barrel White for the rim of the pot and saucer.
  2. Paint the wooden knob. I used Apple Barrel White.
  3. Flip the clay pot upside down so the opening is on the bottom. Decorate the pot with the heart stickers.
  4. Use the glue gun to attach the wooden knob to the bottom of the clay saucer. Put the knob in the middle.
  5. Use the glue gun to attach the bubble bowl to the clay pot (it will be glued to the bottom of it)
  6. Fill the bubble bowl with the candy of your choice!
  7. Put the lid onto the bubble bowl
  8. Tie a piece of white yarn to the top of the clay pot
