Today is the perfect day for a DIY. I think the last DIY I posted was several months ago. I did one on hats & creating your own statements on them. The DIY I’m going to show you how to make today is really cool and I think you’re gonna like it. A Gumball Machine Fish Tank!
-Grey/Black Paint (Optional)
-A SMALL Cup (Miniature)
-A Plant Pot
-A small pot lid
The best part is, you can purchase all the products at Michael’s. Except for the fish of course.
1.) Gather all your materials together. Take your pot & lid and paint them red. I used actual paint instead of spray paint. But you can use what ever. If you do decide to use paint, do thin layers of paint. It’ll dry much quicker & it won’t turn into a sticky mess. It’s like painting you nails…do thin layers of polish and add more coats if needed.
2.) Take your small glass cup and paint it a goldish color on the inside of it & then flip it over to glue onto the lid. This is going to create the lid of the gumball machine.
3.) Now carefully add E-6000 Glue to the rim of the red-painted pot & press on the glass fishbowl. We want to make sure that bowl is on tightly.
4.) DECORATE!! Add whatever you like..marbles, plants, etc. Now add your fish…I purchased a small Fish. I’m naming him Baby Q 🙂
Hope you enjoyed this DIY! Have a great weekend.
