How to Make a Candy Vase

I wanted to share with you how to make a candy vase.  It makes a great Valentine’s Day gift idea for the chocolate lovers.  It is also an economical gift for stockpilers.  I saw a candy themed vase just like this for $24.99 in a local grocery store!

The perfect Valentine's Day gift idea for the chocolate lovers.

I couldn’t believe my eyes!  I decided to come home and re-create my own version for only a fraction of the cost.  I have two major CHOCOHOLICS at my house who are going to love this for Valentines Day!  This is the photo before of my supplies and after!
