These have been on my craft to do list for a long time.
I purchased the items 3 months ago and just got to paint them this past weekend.
The base is a 5" pot I purchased at Dollar Tree
The globes I had on hand (they were a perfect fit!)
The covers we picked up at AC Moore
The red paint I had on hand
Glue used was E-6000 to glue the globe to the base and the wooden bead (also from my stash) to the top so that the candy can be removed.
I am only keeping one - perhaps sell or gift the other one. I really want to paint on what would be typical the candy return, but not sure how to do it. I may look for a metal or hardware to glue on to resemble the output, not sure.
To get it glossy, I use Gloss Mod Podge and painted on two coats with a foam brush.
