Winter Wonderland Gumball Machine

Thanks for Sharing!

It’s thrift store time again and this month of I’ve got a Winter Wonderland Gumball Machine to share with you!  I just love these mini-scenes of winter!  Living in Southern California I only see snow if we happen to get rain and I travel up to our local mountains, so I love creating little magical, snowy vinettes of winter.

If you find a gumball machine at a thrift store I highly suggest scooping it up.

Here’s what I used to make this Winter Wonderland Gumball Machine:  (affiliate links provided for your convenience)

I first cleaned the gumball machine well with some window cleaner.  Then I used a screwdriver to remove the top.  I stuffed cotton balls into the base to even out the bottom, so it would be easier to place the snow on top.

Then I sprinkled on some sparkly snow to create the magical winter wonderland.

I finished it off with a few trees and a couple snowmen.

I found that using a needlenose pliers made placing the trees and snowmen a little easier.

With just a few minutes of work, you can create this cute winter scene too.

Now check out what the other ladies have been up to this month.
