Frugal Candy Vase – Valentine’s Day Gift

This Frugal Candy Vase makes a great Valentine’s Day Gift!

Today I was at Kroger and saw a candy themed vase just like this for $24.99!  I couldn’t believe my eyes!  I decided to come home and create my own for only a fraction of the cost.  I have two major CHOCOHOLICS at my house who are going to love this for Valentines Day!  This is the photo before of my supplies and after!
