How to Create a Gumball Machine Costume for Your Martinelli’s Bottle
Grab a flowerpot, some red spray paint and some fuzzy colored balls from a craft store to make this tasty costume for your Martinelli’s Apple Juice bottle.
Step 1: Remove
Enjoy a delicious 10oz bottle of Martinelli’s Apple Juice, then remove the label by soaking the bottle in warm water.
Step 2: Spray
Place the flowerpot upside down next to the bottle lid on some newspaper in a well-ventilated area. Hold the spray paint can 6-12 inches from the flowerpot and bottle lid and completely coat each using an even spray. Ensure the paint is dry before moving on.
Step 3: Print and Cut
Find a gumball machine picture online, print it out, and cut along the edges of the coin receptacle part.
Step 4: Attach
Glue your Martinelli’s Apple Juice bottle to the bottom of the overturned flowerpot. Glue the paper coin receptacle print-out to the front of the pot.
Step 5: Fill & Cap
Fill the Martinelli’s bottle with colorful fuzzy pompom balls and twist the red spray-painted bottle cap on to close.
So scare up a little extra fun with Martinelli’s apple juices this season and have a spooktacular Halloween! Happy crafting!
