I bought these tiny flower pots because they looked so cute! Turns out they make adorable gumball machine ornaments that kids and adults alike can make for Christmas crafts! If you want a lighter weight version, check out our mini red solo cup gumball ornament!
You can also use mini red solo cups for the bottoms if you want a lighter version.
Watch the video tutorial of making the ornament:
