I don’t care how hold you are, gumball machines bring a smile to your face. There is something nostalgic about them that makes everyone love them.

Here’s what you need to make your own holiday Gumball Ornament:

Now let’s check out the easy steps to creating some for yourself.

To start, fill the clear plastic ornament with 12-20 mini pom poms and reattach the top.

Next, draw a door on the bottom of the cup with a black sharpie with a simple curved top.

Using hot glue gun, glue the ornament to the top of the cup to secure it. If you’re confused as to what kind of hot glue and glue gun to use, make sure you check out this article with download I created for you!
