I came across this adorable DIY gumball machine tutorial over at Tammy Mitchell and instantly fell in love. It is so cute and a fabulously fun favor idea. I mean seriously, how sweet would these look at everyone’s place setting or lined up on the seating card table. Of course they wouldn’t work for a formal wedding but they’d be a lot of fun at a laid back more causal event. OR if you are having children at your wedding, they’d make perfect favors for the tots. They’d LOVE them! These DIY gumball machines seem super simple to make and can be easily customizable to suit your wedding palette!
small terra-cotta pot and base
small round votive holder
small wooden balls
Spray paint the pot base and knob and let dry.
Next, glue the knob to the base and the votive holder to the pot.
Then, fill with gumballs!
Isn’t this a wonderful favor idea? And how cute would it be with a little tag that says something like….
“Hope you have a ball!”
“We’re stuck on each other”
“Thank chew for coming!”
Can you think of any others???
