PEICD (PROJECTS EVEN I CAN DO): POT O' GOLD CANDY DISH


On March 1st, I expect to run outside and it immediately be spring.  Instead, we were faced with another round of snow.  Screw what's going on outside my door, inside it's time for spring. 

I don't usually decorate for St. Patrick's Day, but I got this idea as I was doing some dishes and saw our guacamole bowl just sitting in the cabinet  sad from non-use.  So I decided to whip up this pot of gold candy dish with a rainbow coming out of it. 

The rainbow did not turn out as fabulous as I had imagined, but I got frustrated from spending so much time on what I thought was going to be so easy and decided to share it anyway.  I'm sure someone out there can take the idea and make a better rainbow:)
Supplies:
--Black bowl.  Mine is a cheap guacamole bowl I think I got from Bed Bath and Beyond. 
--Butterscotch candies.  I don't really know who eats these, but they sure look cute in a candy dish.
--Card stock.  I chose to take a different spin on the traditional rainbow colors.

To Make:  It's pretty self-explanatory.  The hardest part was cutting out the rainbow.  I glued each color onto a cardstock base.  It didn't turn out perfect, but that's ok.  Wade said it kind of looked like the base of a rainbow:)

I wish there was real gold in there.

  1. hahaha, I was going to ask you if you actually liked those butterscotch candies till you mentioned that they were primarily for looks. I've never met anyone who eats them!

    1. I'm embarrassed to admit these were from Christmas when I used them to decorate another candy dish:) If anyone did try to eat these, I'd have to run out and buy fresh ones:)

    1. That is great! I need to send you these (or at least a fresh bag of them since these are kind of stale:)

  3. I don't mind butterscotch candies, although I rarely eat them. If I saw some in this cute dish I would definitely grab a few. I like the funky rainbow. It's unique and cute.
