Heart Candy Jar


Pinterest has officially made me feel late for Valentine's Day.  And it's not even February.  

Just sayin'

So I took a trip to the Dollar store, gathered a few supplies and a pretty can of pink spray paint from the hardware store and got to work making my first Valentine's Day craft this year!  A really cute and really simple Heart Candy Jar on a pedestal!


To make one of these cute pedestal candy dishes, you will need:

  • Heart Dish (I found mine at the Dollar Tree Store)
  • Glass Candlestick Holder (from the Dollar Tree Store)
  • E6000 Glue
  • Spray Paint (I used Rust-Oleum in Berry Pink)


First, spray paint the glass candle stick holder.

Tip: Turn your candle stick holder upside down to spray paint it.  This will avoid getting paint on the top of the candle stick holder.  If too much paint gets on there, the glue won't stick as well.


After the paint has dried, use E6000 to adhere the candle stick holder to the heart dish.

Tip:  Lay a few heavy books on top of the heart dish while the glue dries.  This will ensure a secure bond.



Fill with your favorite Valentine's Day treats!


And there you have a simple and easy Heart Candy Dish on a pedestal!
