Fun Friday

Here is my first Fun Friday with a cute Valentine craft for you and the kids from Dollar Store Crafts!

Make a Valentine’s Day Gumball Machine

by rhonda

This gumball machine idea is so stinkin' adorable! They are made by stacking flower pots and glass bowls together; isn't it amazing how much they look like the real deal? I tip my hat to Pamela of Pamela Susan's Fine Jewelry & Gifts for coming up with these! When I first saw them, I totally did a double-take as I realized how they were constructed. Whether you make one for your own holiday decor or you give them as gifts to your sweetest friends, this is a clever idea that is certain to make people smile when they see it!
