Gumball How To!

So for Emma's 3rd Princess Belle Birthday Bash I wanted to make some cool party favors and I found THESE!

No they have nothing to do with "Princess Belle" and they aren't even princess colors BUT they are pretty fantastical!

Here's how I spun them:

-Terra cotta pot and base from your local craft or home improvement store (MY OWN NOTE: I found that these pieces are cheaper at your craft store...and if you have a coupon..BONUS SAVINGS)
-small round votive holder (in the glassware/candle holder section at Michaels)
-red spray paint (MY OWN NOTE: I used yellow, Princess Belle's dress color, for the girls & chalkboard paint for the boys) 
-E6000 adhesive (also available at your craft store)
-small wooden balls/knobs they are in the wood section of your local craft store.  they are flat on one side making them easy to adhere to your machine
All together I made 20 and it set me back about $25...not too shabby!!
Here is my before and after pics...I'm working on remembering to take the pictures haha
**The boys also got a piece of chalk :).
This is super simple and looks so cool! They even fit in little gift bags so I put the chalkboard one's in blue bags for the boys and the yellow one's for the girls in pink bags!!
