I was making a gift for a friend this weekend when I remembered that I hadn't shared the July 4th vases with you. They are a wonderful gift for someone--especially if they work in an office. Who doesn't love to visit an employee that has CANDY on their desk?
I filled these vases with red and white peppermints and red cinnamon hard candy. It was colorful and will be a big hit at the office for the rest of the month. AND the suncatchers can be peeled off and other motifs can be added later. By the way, I combined it with the 2 patriotic 10" circles shown in the post, below for a more impressive showing of the colors. So, find a pretty vase and put some suncatchers on it--something thematic that the recipient can relate to--if not patriotism, then their hobby or favorite sports team. That's a sure way to win someone's heart!
