DIY: Sweets For Your Sweetheart

I mentioned earlier this week that I like to be festive for the holidays so yesterday I made a little V-day craft for Casey. I got this idea from a fashion forum years ago and I have made it a few times in the past because it is such a cute and easy craft, and Casey just loves candy. This under $10 craft this super easy and fast to put together and is perfect for any sweet-tooth sweetheart in your life.
All you need is wooden shish kabob skewers, a hot glue gun, vase and your favorite kind of candy. I used one bag of Valentines day chocolate candies.
I put the glue on the skewers as to not melt the candy package.
And some fabric for some upcoming projects!!
And umm sorry April, but I don't think you reader request of Dj's bridesmaids gear is not going to make the DIY list ;)
If you have any favorite Valentines Days craft ideas I would love to hear about them!
