Take notes from JoJo Siwa and live the sweet life with DIY candy dishes filled with gumballs, chocolate sixlets or any wrapped candy that colorfully matches your party!
DIY Terra Cotta Candy Dishes Supplies:
- Terra cotta pot and matching lid
- Glass bowl (I found these fishbowl style one at Dollar Tree)
- Wooden Knob with a flat side
- Acrylic Paint and Paint brushes
- Strong adhesive (I used E6000)
First, turn your terra cotta pot and lid over and adhere a wooden knob in the center using a strong adhesive, such as E6000. You can find these wooden knobs in the wood crafts department of any craft store and note that they are sometimes considered “doll heads.”
Paint both your lid and your pot in any pattern you choose. Once dry, feel free to add any additional decorative elements, such as more glittered accents, sequins or bows. You could also personalize the terra cotta bottoms or glass tops with your Cricut and adhesive vinyl!
To assemble, place a glass bowl on top of the terra cotta pot, using E6000 to adhere it in place. Fill the bowl with your candy of choice and place the lid on top to complete.
It now resembles a gumball machine but one that doesn’t require any coins to grab your goodies! Just lift the lid and grab a sample!
These designs work well for a JoJo Siwa themed party which features lots of candy, color and positive messages, but they can easily be painted and assembled for any party theme!
