Craft Booth Ideas: Bubble Gum Machine Button Display

2013 begins a new crafting chapter for me– I’m opening my own booth in a local antique/art shop! I know a lot of you might have your own booth or are interested in opening one, so let’s share our eco-friendly display ideas together!

I plan on sharing several booth ideas in the next few weeks. My first idea was inspired by this fabulous post from Gallamore West where they placed thread inside a bubble gum machine. Now, I’m upcycling my old bubble gum machine into a button display!

What You Will Need:

1. A bubble gum machine

2. Lots of buttons

How To Do It:

1. Open the top of your bubble gum machine by undoing the screw on the top. The lid should come right off.

2. Clean out any left over bubble gum.

3. Carefully pour in your buttons. You could also use beads, bobbins, thread, etc.
