"Check out these DIY Gumball Machines. Some person much more clever than myself came up with this idea. I have seen all sorts of versions of them online. This is my version. I used 3 jars with lids from the dollar store, a 2 pack of 3.5 inch terra cotta pots from the dollar store and one slightly taller than the pots, glass from the dollar store. Spray paint the pots, glass and lids. Once dry glue the jars to the bottoms. That is it. Fill with candy. I filled mine with shells and glass beads. "
