Thanks to my lovely sister here's a tutorial on how to make your very own gumball machine costume! - Duck Tape - 1 black sharpie pen - 2 to 3 bags of machine size gumballs -5.5 x 6.5 inch cardboard piece - Red Dress - Hot glue gun Line the bottom and waist of your dress with duck tape. Cut 4 to 5 inch pieces to line everything perfectly. Using your hot glue gun begin gluing your gumballs to the top portion of your red dress!!! This can be time consuming so be sure to put on your favorite holiday movie! While your gumballs are setting take your 5.5 x 6.5 cardboard piece and wrap duck tape around the piece to cover completely. Sketch out a coin slot using your sharpie. Glue all four corners to dress under waistline. Let gumballs and coin slot sit overnight. Add some color to your hair! We liked using a colorful bow avaliable at Rax Clothing The front of your dress might be a bit top heavy due to the weight of the gumballs. If possible strap a colorful ribbon in between the straps of your dress to make a bow! Happy Halloween!! -- Nicole Posted on October 20, 2014 by Gina Landes.
