Valentine Candy Dishes


want a cute way to display your valentine candy?
or have a special someone that you need a little something for?

we have just the thing...
Valentine Candy Dishes

here's what you do:

find:
-a cute bowl or dish (we found ours at target)
-a candlestick holder (we always find ours at thrift shops)
-spray paint (if you choose to paint your candlestick)
-E6000 glue

then:
-paint your candlestick and let it dry.
-adhere your candlestick to your bowl or dish with the E6000 and leave to dry for 24 hours.
-(we usually put something heavy on top to get a tight seal)
-fill it with your favorite valentine candy
and waa-laa!
ready to gift or keep.
so  sweet.
so so simple.

  6. Good idea again! I've been known to make an impromptu cake/cookie plate by turning a bowl upside down and placing a plate on top of it (not gluing them). I've been meaning to buy an inexpensive bowl/plate and gluing them together for a more permanent version!

  7. I did this with come covered candy dishes and made them into apothacarty jars that I love. I love this idea as well, I've seen those bowls and I have a few candle holders waiting for some love. Thanks SO much for the inspiration!

  11. FOR REAL?

    Why don't I EVER have candlesticks? I need to get a stash. I have passed those bowls up at least 6 times this season. Because what was I going to do with them....really?

    Oh, my husband is so mad at you right now! :)

    Love this! And plus, isn't ANY excuse to use E6000....a good one? That stuff is fantastic!
