    • Breast Cancer Candy Dish Support Craft

      breast cancer awareness craft Show your support of hope and love in breast cancer research by displaying this lovely candy dish in your home. October is breast cancer awareness month, we honor those who are fighting, those who have won the battle, as well as to those that have lost their fight. This jar pictured left is in honor of my grandmother, Barb Chapman.

      flower pot craft suppliesYou'll Need:
      1 Flower Pot
      1 flower pot base
      1 knob (They have these in the craft section of walmart/target) for .59 each
      1 Round vase (bought it at the dollar store)
      2 shades of Pink Spray Paint (Whatever colors you desire)
      Glue
      Dimensional Stickers (optional!)
      pink Ribbon or beads

      Spray paint the flower pot light pink. Flip the base of the flower pot saucer over and spray paint that as well.

      Let the pot dry (this varies depending on the brand of spray paint used). Ours took 30 minutes to cure.

      While the flower part is drying, Paint the knob in a contrasting color, here I painted it a different shade of pink from the candy pot. Attach the knob to the saucer to make the "Top" of the candy jar.

      Decorate by painting various designs. Here, I actually just attached 3 dimensional breast cancer ribbon stickers using a little dot of superglue.

      Using a strong glue, attach the glass jar to the flower pot base. Let it dry completely and set overnight to cure.

        HANDS OF HOPE. I am from Jennings county. I had 7 members on my team, and last year we raised $5,000.00We worked real hard thinking of way to raise. My husband Passed away with cancer, and it is my prayer that they will find a cure.
        Thanks again for the great idea, and may God bless you.

        I LOVE this idea! I've made clay pot candy dishes before, but I haven't made an awareness one before. This is something I definitely will make - my mom is a breast cancer survivor. Thanks for sharing this idea.
