This gumball machine idea is so stinkin’ adorable!  They are made by stacking flower pots and glass bowls together; isn’t it amazing how much they look like the real deal?  I tip my hat to Pamela of Pamela Susan’s Fine Jewelry & Gifts for coming up with these!  When I first saw them, I totally did a double-take as I realized how they were constructed.  Whether you make one for your own holiday decor or you give them as gifts to your sweetest friends, this is a clever idea that is certain to make people smile when they see it!  [how to make a Valentine’s Day gumball machine]
