I love making things for my kids, nieces and nephews. With Easter around the corner I wanted to DIY something special for them. I decided on these candy dishes. There are a lot of tutorials such as: http://www.prettydesigns.com/diy-ideas-candy-storages/
and Old Time Pottery.
Here is how I made my candy dishes...
~ terra cotta pot- (I got mine from Home Depot)
~ terra cotta pot tray-(I got mine from Home Depot)
~ glass "fish bowl" dish (I got mine at the Dollar Tree)
~ wooden knob or other item to decorate the top
~ craft paint in your choice of color
~ E6000, gorilla glue, hot glue
Paint pot, tray and wood knob if you used one. Be as creative as you want to be. You can use stencils, multiple colors, different designs you name it.
Once the paint is dry turn the pot upside down so the bottom is at the top. Glue the glass bowl to the pot using gorilla glue, E6000 or hot glue(hot glue may not be the best option- I had a few bowls that wouldn't stay attached with the glue and we almost had a huge mess on our hands when I picked it up) . Turn the tray upside down so the bottom is at the top and glue the knob or item chosen. I used a hot glue gun to glue my items to the tray.
Give your item and bowl plenty of time to dry then fill the bowl with candy. Top off the candy dish with the lid and a bow and "Boom" all done!
These awesome candy dishes perfect for parties (candy bar) and gifts for friends and family.
