A project I am currently working on for an upcoming event is a Candy Buffet. You know...something like this:
or even this...
There is something so inviting about a bunch of candy at your fingertips...bliss.
I started and ended my project this weekend. It only took 2 days of shopping, painting, and gluing.
I made my rounds yesterday and today to our local thrift shops looking for candlesticks and glass bowls/jars (that are wide enough to put your hand in.) I was able to find what I needed without a problem and spent about $15.00
Here are the different candlesticks I picked up, ready to be spray painted. I first applied a primer (Rustoleum's 2X brand) and topped them with a white glossy spray paint, also Rustoleum brand.
Here are the glass containers.
...after a couple of coats of spray paint.
...and the two put together.
The glass jars are just placed on the candlesticks for now. I will eventually use some E6000 glue to adhere them together. The final touch will be the candy.
The total cost for this project was about $25.00, which includes the candlesticks, the glass jars, and the 2 cans of spray paint.
