Candy/Bubble Gum Jar

Hello and happy Monday!  I wanted to share a craft project with you this morning.  It was a lot of fun to make and I am loving the results.  I saw this idea on pinterest....the direct link is http://karaspartyideas.com/2011/05/diy-tutorial-make-your-own-bubble-gum.html.  I just absolutely fell in love with it!!  So, I went ahead and gathered my supplies and made this bubble gum/candy jar.
I used a glass vase from the dollar store, a terra cotta pot with the bottom saucer, round wooden craft ball, and a doll pin stand.
I decided to paint my terra cotta pot pink and then distress it so the lime green could be seen as well.  It's hard to tell the two colors by my pictures, however, I like how the green and pink work together.  So, basically you flip your terra cotta pot upside down and glue (I used liquid nails) the vase on top of it.  Then glue your wooden craft ball on the top of the upside down saucer.  The saucer is essentially acting as the lid of the bubble gum/candy jar.  The doll pin stand is then glued on to the front of the upside down terra cotta pot.  Then you fill with your choice of candy and/or bubble gum and enjoy it!!  I chose to fill it with jelly beans!!!
So fun....right???
