DIY Valentine Candy Dishes

This year I decided I needed some cute candy dishes to put 
all the yummy Valentine's candy in. 
I was at Michael's one night and came across these super cute 
Valentine bowls and I knew I had to get them. 

These are a lot like the ones I used for my cupcake stand I made
 last summer, which you can see HERE

I could have just left them the way they were, but that's no fun so I had to fancy them up a bit!


I had some candle sticks from the Dollar Store on hand. I got those and spray painted them red.
To see how to spray paint glass you can go see my tutorial HERE.


When those fully dried, I glued them to the bowls with E-6000 glue.


When I put them up on the candle sticks I decided it needed another bowl type thing next to it. I knew the perfect thing. I pulled out my Valentine's box and found my cute little heart silver bowl I have had since I got married.


Perfect!!!
Now for filling them with goodies...


I am so happy how they turned out! Although, I have been in a little trouble with them because my kiddos keep sneaking candy. I might I have put them up higher!!!






Happy Valentine's!!
