This will be the end product. A cute Valentine's inspired candy bowl.
You will need:
-pieces of candy (I used Hershey Kisses)
-assorted colors of beads (pink, white, red)
[different colors can be used depending on what it is for. (ex. St. Patty's day, Christmas, ect.)]
In order to make the bowl look more full than it really is, you first have to stuff it with paper towel.
After that take a piece of paper and wrap it around the paper towel, so there is more structure to it.
You're trying to make a base so that when you put the beads in they won't fall into little crevasses.
Next take a piece of red tissue paper and wrap it around the paper, just like you wrapped
the paper around the paper towel. This is just incase the beads don't fully cover, it will still look nice
Next, put all the beads you collected into the dish and arrange them until you are pleased
with the way it looks. (Don't be afraid to use different colors and sizes!) It makes it look more fun!
After that add your Hershey kisses to the bowl and you're done!
Make sure if you have kids around that they don't think the beads are the candy.
But this is just a very simple and unique way to create a nice centerpiece or piece of decoration
for your house for Valentine's day! Also a great gift to a friend.
