Instead of a vase, I covered a cardboard box with wrapping paper.
If I remember right, I spent LESS THAN $8 for this unique & personalized gift!
Wooden BBQ Skewers
Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Small Cardboard Box (recycled)
CANDY! (I got this candy at the Dollar Store)
Tissue Paper (to cover Styrofoam base)
