My girls LOVE gumballs. They even save up their quarters so that when we go to the store then can hit the gumball machine. So I thought it would be nice for them if did our own DIY Gumball Jar so we could keep some in the house. I know I don’t like them to eat them all the time but when they are good they can earn them.
For this project you can use any jar you have or you can go buy one. You also can make it for anything it you want like a cookie jar or candy jar or even a toy jar (well for small toys that is). I wrote the words on the jar but my oldest daughter did the rest. We chose the colors because they are the same colors our gumballs are, but you can choose any colored paint you like for your jar.
One thing to remember when painting on glass is that you want it to be VERY clean. To get it clean before you start to paint rub the jar down with rubbing alcohol it gets all the yuck off of it. And make sure you are using glass paint too. You can find glass paint in any craft store but it is usually in a different section than the regular paint. If you can’t find it just ask a store clerk.
