How To Make A Gumball Machine Light – DIY Gumball Machine Night Light Tutorial

Awesome way to make a lamp shaped like a gumball machine. Embellish your room with this old-school style decorative light!

Gumball Machine Light

For this super-duper retro nightlight 🙂 you will need:

  • a plastic bucket (better red) (mine was 5 L, bottom diameter – 18 cm, height – about 19 cm)

  • Christmas lights

  • small tennis balls (I used 60)

  • aquarium (spherical) (mine was 19 L, hole diameter – 16 cm)

  • useless saucer

  • plastic bottle cap

  • nail polish

About the last one – please, make sure the brand of nail polish you use doesn’t test it’s products on animals.

A great tip for my lazy subscribers 🙂 You can use multicolored Christmas lights and don’t paint the ping pong balls 😉 But, unfortunately, your gumballs will look white at day 🙂 Anyway, at night they will look awesome 🙂

Love. Create. Discover.
