Pick Your Poison

As long as it's chocolate that is :~)
What do you think of my Faux Gumball Machines? There's no gum in them chocolate is so much better, don't you agree?
So I'm really, really, really - REALLY REALLY - curious which one is your favorite?
Here's a group shot:

Supplies:

Clay pots with trays, Glass Ivy bowls, acrylic paints, Designer paper and ribbon (all Stampin' Up!) Mod Podge, felt, and the "ball" topper is an old beaded necklace that broke and I recycled it! Total cost: maybe $3.00 each (before candy)


Fun getting messy: PRICELESS!

I was looking through blogs and found yours, you are so creative! I just LOVE these gumball machines, how clever!

Michelle said...

Patty, these are fabulous! And so, so clever! I love them. I especially love the red one, because red is my favorite color, but they are all awesome.

Oh my word, WAY clever!!! I think the red looks most like a real gumball machine, just because of the color, but my favorite is the pink -- I just like those colors and I think it looks kind of like a lady -- the pot is the skirt, the glass is the bosom -- LOL!!! The top is her hat!!!
