These adorable mini gumball machine Christmas ornaments are so cute and so simple to make. Check out our full tutorial at Mom Spark.
My name is Allison and I think I might have a sugar addiction. If it’s sweet I’m probably going to love it. And even if I don’t I’m probably going to eat it :) Except for black licorice. That’s going to be a hard pass every time.
But bubblegum? I LOVE bubblegum. Not the business with aspartame and a minty flavor but real, true bubblegum like you get out of a bubblegum machine. The sweet smell, bright colors, and clicking of the crank as you trade your coin in for gum… just thinking about it reminds me of happy childhood times :)
I think that’s why I absolutely love my most recent handmade Christmas ornament that I’ve shared at Mom Spark this week. But I also love this Christmas craft because these gumball machine ornaments are easy to make and won’t break the bank.
And it’s hardly the first time I’ve made sweet inspired Christmas crafts.
Remember thisgumdrop wreath? How about these giant gumdrop Christmas ornaments? And then these gumdrop ornaments that I shared at Mom Spark back in 2013? Sweet times!
And if using shatterproof ornaments, these guys are pretty tough and therefore good to use on a tree around children and pets. Granted, the terra cotta clay pot can break, but I dropped one of mine on tile and it just took a little chunk out of the rim of the pot. A little bit of red paint can hide a multitude of sins! And what kid wouldn’t just love making these super cute ornaments?
And would you look at that fun rainbow of colors? Totally adorable, if you ask me! Want to see how to make your own gumball machine ornaments? Head on over to Mom Spark and grab the full tutorial and see how CUTE these guys look on a little white tree with multi-color Christmas lights!
