Before & after: gumball terrarium

This is probably one of the most favourite things I’ve ever made. I had a lot of fun! I bought the bubblegum machine in its original, tired form from a friend.

I then sanded it back, gave it an undercoat and then a couple of coats of this glorious glossy blue.

I then cut a piece of perspex to size (Ikea frames! They all have flexible plastic rather than glass – perfect!) to sit inside the base of the gumball machine and sealed it up to make sure that it was watertight. After that I built a simple moss terrarium inside and added a cutesy bunny and then I was finished :)

It was really hard to part with this but it went to a great home and I’m happy that others loved it as much as I did too.
