Mothers Day DIY Gift – Gumball Machine plus FREE Printables


Living in the Southern Hemisphere means we are in Autumn right now so inspiration for Mother’s Day was drawn from the beautiful strong  colours that are synonymous with this season.

A few weeks ago we were at Lifestyle Garden Centre and I came across Terracotta pots with drip trays – I bought them immediately, I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them.

I came across loads of “Gumball Machine” tutorials on Pinterest  – and we made one two years ago that now holds my nail polishes.

This afternoon the boys and I got busy making these for the two grannies for Mothers Day Gifts.

This is what we used:

Terracotta Pot and Drip Tray
Hot Glue Gun
Glass Bowl

I’ve also attached Free Printables we made to go with our gifts.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there – God Bless you all.

May the Lord keep you safe , happy and healthy so you may continue to be the best mom the Lord chose for your children.
