For my sister’s wedding, I wanted to create a candy bar with take home bags to serve as wedding favors for the guests.  So one weekend when my sister was in town to help with the DIY wedding projects, we decided to tackle the candy bar.  Of course, we wanted to do it on the cheap, so we started by hitting up nearby goodwill stores for glassware and candlestick holders.  We made sure to pick pieces that varied in size, shape, and height.  Here’s what we ended up finding:

To incorporate the color scheme for her wedding (gold), we taped off some areas of the glass and spray painted them gold.  We spray painted the candlestick holders gold as well.

Then using loctite glue (this glue works wonders!), we adhered the glass bowls and jars on top of the various candlestick holders that we had found.  We set them aside and allowed them to dry for a full 24 hours.

We also found these lovely tea-infuser spoons that we decided to use as candy scoops!

We kept most of the glass unpainted, as the plan was to fill the jars with gold-wrapped candy.  The final product:

At the wedding, the candy bar was set-up in front of a large neon sign at the American Sign Museum in Cincinnati.  Incorporating the sign museum theme, I added a few cute framed signs and an adorable wooden ‘Sweet’ sign that I had scored at a goodwill!  The chevron striped bags were purchased off amazon.  Treat yo’ self!!!
