I've had the supplies and idea to make this project for awhile, but you know, life and moving and such. Anyway, I've been trying to dig into my crafting supplies that I have and trying to make things with what I've already got.
At the beginning of April my awesome cousin, Nikki organized and held a garage sale fundraiser at her house to give the money to me and Amazing Boyfriend. She raised over $1200! We're still not sure what we're going to do with the money, although a trip has been suggested, but until we figure out what we're using the money for it's safely tucked into a savings account (so if you know where I live, don't get any funny ideas!)
Anyway, it was a huge labor of love and I'm so grateful that my cousin is as awesome as she is, so I wanted to do something to thank her. So I decided to make her...
A Sweet Candy Dish!!!
Wanna see how I did it?
small terra cotta pot and dish
I started off this project by painting the pot, the dish and the wooden knob.
After all the pieces are completely dry, I glued the wooden knob to the bottom of the dish to make the lid for the candy dish. Then I glued the glass bowl to the bottom of the pot to make the base for the candy dish.
Now I have my candy dish together. Cute idea, huh?
But it still needs something...
I took some decorative vinyl and cut out the word "Sweet!" with my silhouette machine. Then applied it to the glass bowl.
Add a cute little bow, a few little candies and voila!
A sweet little thank you for my awesome cousin. I really wish that I could do more, but I know she'll appreciate the gesture.
