There is something truly exquisite about a candy dish. Since I was a child, I remember visiting friends of my parents, glaring at the beautiful glass dish full of scrumptious deliciousness, and just waiting for the offer to have a piece of candy.
Think about it! As an adult, how many times have you found yourself reverting your gaze to the dish of candy sitting on the desk of the professional with whom you are speaking? Banker, Interviewer, or maybe your boss.
Everyone loves candy, right?
Supplies for Bowl Candy Dish
To begin making your bowl candy dish, place your bowl right side up on the table.
On top of this, lay your saucer right side up so that you can see the rim of the bowl through the saucer. Bright lighting works best to see the rim.
Use your E6000 glue around the saucer just INSIDE the rim showing through from the bowl.
Give the glue plenty of time to set and harden.
Once hardened, turn your saucer upside down. Glue the drawer pull into the center of the saucer bottom.
The saucer has become your lid for your bowl. How simple is that?
Supplies for Tall Candy Dish
To make the tall candy dish, follow the same steps above.
Here though, we are going to glue the candlestick to the bottom of the bowl.
Again, you can’t get any easier than that!
These simple dollar store candy dishes will cost you around $3-$4 to make and look beautiful and inviting.
