DIY Vintage Gumball Machine Ornament

How to make a Vintage Gumball Machine Ornament from upcycled materials

I have dedicated this year to trying to craft with my existing stash of supplies as often as I can, so a upcycled a ribbon spool, some glass ornaments I found in the closet and my Tombow Adhesives inspired this Vintage Gumball Machine Ornament!

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Creative Christmas blog hop hosted by Cassity at Remodelaholic  There are 26 fabulous designers sharing their #creativeChristmas projects this week.  So, after you scroll through my Vintage Gumball Machine ornament projects, please click on the links below to view all of the other projects!  It's going to be a Great Week!  

Here’s how I made it:

1.) Remove the top and bottom from the ribbon spool.  Sand away the glue and rough edges with a nail file.  Remove the sanding dust with damp paper towel, let dry.  Color with Tombow Dual Brush Pen #847 Crimson.  

Note: you could also use a section of a paper towel roll as well, just select a smaller glass ornament!

2.)  Remove top from glass ornament, apply red acrylic craft paint and set aside to dry.  Fill with 200 (7mm) assorted color pom poms.

3.)  Once dry, replace top on glass ornament.  Cut a 3″ by 3″ square from red cardstock.  Apply Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue to bottom rim of ribbon spool.  Attach to cardstock, let dry.

4.)  Punch small scroll label from silver metallic cardstock.

5.)  With the Tombow MONOTWIN Permanent Marker, draw on the coin handle and the gumball slot.  Attach to base of gumball machine with Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive.  Remember, Xtreme is 5 times stronger than regular adhesive runners, so you have to roll to apply and swipe to the side to get a clean application.

6.)  Apply Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue to top edge of ribbon spool.  Attach pom pom filled glass ornament, making sure that it is straight and centered.  Set aside to dry.

7.)  Punch 3/4″ circle from red cardstock and apply “25¢” silver stickers.  I didn’t have a cent sign, so I created one with a lower case “c” and “l”.  Attach to front center of Gumball Machine with Tombow Xtreme Tabs.  These Tabs are strong and clear, so the adhesive won’t be seen through the glass ornament.  Thread through a 10″ length of red and white bakers twine, tie in a knot and hang on your tree!

These Vintage Gumball Machine Ornaments are quick and easy enough so you can craft up a batch of them with your kids for their Teachers, Family and Friends this holiday season! 

I had all of the supplies needed in my craft stash, but they can be purchased fairly inexpensively at your local craft or big box store.

Now it's time for the FUN stuff!

Follow the links below to get a close up peek at what all of the other talented designers have created for the #creativeChristmas blog hop!  I was blown away by the creative inspiration!  And NOW is the time to get crafty for Christmas!

This is very good news and very good idea to give a private version of stack overflow Q & A. Because there are many numbers of government and private organization who needs stack overflow Q & A. As a company employee I would to use private version. And also, I would recommend Stack overflow to work on Bangladesh. because of two reasons. the first is a large number of population. second is your work is perfect that Bangladesh needs you.

Great post. Articles that have meaningful and insightful comments are more enjoyable, at least to me. It’s interesting to read what other people thought and how it relates to them or their clients, as their perspective could possibly help you in the future.

There's always something great to watch with Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. Choose from popular movies and full seasons of hit TV shows. Enjoy a wide variety of choices, including Action & Adventure, Comedy, Kids & Family, Documentaries, and more. Plus, there are never any commercials.

While seeing generally, if you are looking for more content and entertainment, you can go for Hotstar. If you are always exploring something new to watch, you can go for Netflix. If you want to have the common ground between this two, you can opt for amazon prime.

Regards 2016
