This candy jar has been on my to-do list for a while. It was an exciting project to do.
Here is how I made it:
1. THE BASE - I used a 5 1/2 inch terra cotta pot, spray painted it with semi-gloss black - about four coats.
2. THE BOWL - bought a glass bowl from a dollar store. It was really good (thick) glass, which made the candy jar very impressive. I bought two bags of kisses - but to fill the bowl, I would have needed four bags. I glued the bowl on to the upside down painted terra cotta pot with epoxy glue.
3. THE LID - I used a 5 1/2 inch terra cotta saucer. I spray painted the saucer with semi-gloss black. The handle on the lid is a drawer knob that I spray painted black, and glued on with epoxy glue.
I tied a bow on the dish to make it festive.
Give this with a card that says, Merry "Kiss"mas, and you have a sweet gift.
I gave this gift out yesterday and the recipient was thrilled about it!
Gotta like that!
Thanks for stopping by!
