Father's Day 2007

I almost forgot about this gift for my hubby!!! My kids and I made this a couple years ago. He went to Virginia Tech - so we had to use the official colors of maroon and orange! GO HOKIES!!!
As you can probably tell this is just made up of the terra cotta planters and some paint. The glass part is just a vase, all the pieces are from Michaels. It is filled with Jelly Belly' jelly beans. It was a big hit, I think the kids liked it more than Daddy did!

My favorite part is the little "holder on the top. I filled it with white jelly beans then added extra Mod Podge to seal it. Finally I used a spray sealer just to make sure the paint is safe.

My husband still has this in his office. That is the part that means the most to me!!! :-)
