Candy Corn Vases & Bottle Vases

If you've been following along you would know by now my obsession with anything candy corn this Halloween season.  I stumbled across a tutorial from The Swell Life on how to make these candy corn vases.  I went to our local St. Vincent de Paul store and picked up a bunch of glass bottle vases and full size vases and really broke the bank.  The bottle vases were $.25 and $.50 each and the larger vases were a whopping $1.25 each.  Add a couple coats of Krylon paint in white, orange and yellow and viola...candy corn vases.  I made extra ones for my kids to give to their teachers with some fresh flowers.  Hey, some sucking up doesn't hurt. If you knew what a handful my 5 year old is, you would understand that we need all the sucking up to his kindergarten teacher we can get....or think of it as an apology gift. Get the step by step tute here.
