Made 8 of these for my girls teachers.I saw them at the store for 24.99 made them for about 10 they can be made cheaper if you buy vases at dollar Store.This vase is filled with minature size candy bars.I used  skewers and hot glues the candy bar to them.I used styro foam for the bottom of vase and wrapped in tissue.Insert the sticks arranged the way you like then fill vase with candy.After that you can just get tissue an dfill in the spaces between candies.Make a bow and hot glue it and you are done....

    That is cute! I did something similar Last year with mason jars,  I etched a design / or theme per each teacher..(for my elementary kiddos that is..my teen would die before taking candy to a teacher ya know LOL..except at church..it is ok to take stuff to your Sunday School Teacher?? LOL>.) Any way I etched  around the middle of the jar..one teacher got lady bugs crawling up her jar,and around the "top" with a few daisy's and  the other loved frogs, so she got some leap frogs. going sticking out their tongues..LOL.....LOL..and I just filled it full of candy and gum,,and stickers,,and what ever i could cram..Oh and a small purse size bottle of lotion from B&B Works..LOL..!! What teacher wouldn't love a little candy and some smell good stuff?? I know I always do!!

    OH..duh..PLEASE over look me..bearly 2 weeks post op here..lol...that is a very goo job on those by the way!! nice gift!!

    Very cute idea! By the way where can you find etching solution? I've looked at wal-mart and Joann's and they don't have it.

    If you have a Michael's or Hobby Lobby near you, they carry it.  I always wait for the 40% coupon and buy the largest jar they have.  Keep it tightly sealed and it keeps forever.
