How to Make a Candy Bowl...Out of Candy!

created at: 01/13/2012

Breanna's attempt to make a candy tray was less then stellar, but, being a clever crafter, she took the resulting lemon and made lemonade. She spent about $3 at the Dollar Store on candy and set to work following the instructions she found at Tutto Bella to make the tray, which turned into her bowl. The outcome would be perfect for Valentine's Day sweets, no?

Although her's looks nothing like Tutto Bella's, which is pictured below, its Dale Chihuly vibe is definitely worthy of a shout out. For more information about Breanna's entertaining adventure in candy melting, visit Dollar Store Mom.

G'day! As a friendly follow up, I added more hints and tips in making these bowls on my new blog. (Provided a thank you to you too for this blog post too!) WHOO HOO!
Had HEAPS of fun in making them and like a 5 year old, wanted to continue making more too!
Next time, I think I will try it with the candy canes and hard candy! Thank you!

DM..I think it would be more fun to eat them and make new every year. :)

These are so very pretty! I wonder if you coated them with that thick clear acrylic coating if they'd be strong enough to last from year to year.
