Bubble gum bubble gum in a dish

Pot week continues with a bubble gum dispenser!
Things you need:
One Pot
One pot dish (I know that isn’t the technical term but I am blanking for the moment. The dish the pot sits in and catches the excess water)
A wooden wheel: like 79 cents at the crafts store

A knob: (I know I got this for cheap at home depot..like 30 cents or something:
Now take those 4 things and spray them RED!
Now, you are going to need a round fish bowl. I got this one at the¬†thrift store¬†for $1.00 (not including tax) and I was at Petco (I take my kids there occasionally to look at the animals…its about the closet thing I want to get to having a pet) and I saw some for about $7.00 so I think I might have gotten a pretty good bargain!

Now after the paint is dry…you’ll need to paint on the details:
Just a gray rectangle
(make sure the pot is upside down!!!)
NOw hot glue the bowl to the upside down pot:

Then hot glue the knob and the wheel together:
Then hot glue that to the dish (upside down)
This is the lid it should fit right on the top of the bowl
Fill with bubble gum (or you could use it as a cookie jar)
Thats about 4 bucks worth of gum balls!
