Reunion Crafts

So this past weekend I attended the 21st Annual Bullock Reunion in Paris, Arkansas. Part of what we do is bring a craft to "sell". The money helps fund the reunion for the following year. This is what I decided to take, although not all I made, lol.
This "set" included a cork board, magnetic board, dry erase board, and a chalk board.
The large frame was $1 and the cork board inside it was a free roadside find. The tacks were cute little erasers that I glued with E6000 onto plain thumbtacks.

The chalkboard was a platter from the Dollar Tree. I used a pop tab on the back to hang it on the wall. I already had the chalkboard paint of course.
The dry erase board frame was 50 cents. I already had the burlap I placed behind the glass and the pen was from the Dollar Tree.
The magnetic board was from a cookie sheet I already had. I had the paint too. This paint is Exotic Sea Gloss from Valspar, I LOVE this color! Again the magnets were made from cute little erasers from Dollar Tree that I glued on magnetic dots with E6000.
I also made these bubblegum "machines" to take. Aren't they cute?!
To make these all you need is some pots from the Dollar Tree.
Painted your choice of color. Here I used the same paint from Valspar. I also used glossy red from Rustoleum but don't have pictures of painting in process, hmmm.
Then you'll need some glass bowls. I bought both from the Dollar Tree but in the end decided to go with the fish bowl look.
Then you'll need pacifiers. I picked up this 2 pack from Dollar Tree. Cut off the nipple and handle.
I painted these with some left over paint from Rustoleum that I used to paint my dishwasher with.
I had these little plates that "came with" some other dishes I bought and were just sitting in my craft supply hutch along with these knobs. I still have a few left but I'm thinking if I want to make more, some toy dishes would be about the right size for the lids too. I only painted the top, food safety and all.

Glue on the pacifier (again with E6000, isn't it fabulous stuff?), add gumballs and voila! Your very own gumball machine!

I had a LOT of fun at the reunion and made some "purchases" myself  I will share later on. Can't wait for next year!
