DIY Gumball Machine Christmas Ornament

I am finding it hard to get into the mood this holiday season. I think a lot of it has to do with stress at work and strife in the world. And, even though I am taking my own advice, I still feel as though this holiday is like heavy weights tied around my ankles. As I type that, it sounds so depressing honest.

I keep telling myself that I am choosing well the things that really matter, but really I am choosing not to do. I am choosing not to do things I don’t really want to do…except for maybe the Christmas cards I was semi-guilted into sending. 😉

In fact, the only thing I have really managed to do well this holiday season is lay on the couch, binge-watching Jessica Jones on Netflix.

I think my bah-humbug attitude is getting on the hubby’s nerves.

But, there is one Christmas tradition that I am not skipping…making a creative ornament to give to friends and family. This year’s ornament: Gumball Machine.

I am terrible of giving step-by-step instructions on craft projects, so here is a lazy-girl’s tutorial (and I think you can figure it out):
