|Makes a great gift!|
We used a terra cotta planter, a little paint, and some festive Easter ribbon. Total coast? Under $3!! I love using paint on terra cotta pots when I am working with the country kids because those pots suck up the paint and they dry fast!! Yes, you have to put a few coats of paint on to get a nice cover, but it dries so fast, well it takes no time at all. A little glue and a cute ribbon and as Emeril Lagasse would say "BAM!!!!" you have a cute little candy dish.
You could even take this idea a step further and use it as a gift. Just tuck a packet of flower seeds in with some candy and you have a gift that keeps giving! After the candy is gone, the pot can be used to grow the seeds. Think of the delight your friends, family, heck even an elderly neighbor would have in finding one of these wrapped in cellophane sitting on their front porch on Easter morning!

kid's M&Ms, the oldest country kid insisted I take one of his favorite bubble gum eggs!
