I made Candy Gumball Machine Party Favors this week. These are definitely one of my most favorite fun food craft ideas ever!
Whether you’re having a birthday party or baby shower, this craft is perfect for a dessert table or party favors. They are made with a plastic ornament and so so easy!
What you’ll need to make a Candy Gumball Machine:
- Clear Plastic Ornament Ball (I found mine at Michaels)
- Paper cups
- Mini M&M’s, Sixlets or small gumballs
- Black Sharpie
Pull out the top of the ornament. Wrap a piece of paper into a funnel to pour candy into the ornament. Cover the opening with tape. I used duct tape. Like the zebra print?
Punch a hole in the bottom of the cup with a pen, push your finger through to make a larger hole.
Place the ornament full of candy in the cup.
Draw the pretend opening for the gumballs and add embellishments if you have them.
I put a small round gem sticker on the top as well as the front. For an easy 5 minute craft, I think they turned out super cute!
I’m sharing this craft for Living Creative Thursday!
Living Creative Thursdays is a fun community activity where people share photos of their creative lives on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Google+.

Not only is it a fun way to share creative photos, but a way I can give back the blogging community by featuring great projects on LivingLocurto.com.
