Looking for the perfect holiday centerpiece? This easy DIY candy cane vase is a budget-friendly project that will be the star of your holiday table!
For our Christmas party some years ago, I bought several Christmasy flower arrangements, carefully arranged them in vases, and placed them around the house.  Classy, perhaps, but completely unimaginative.  I’m pretty sure no one even noticed them.  Not exactly money well spent.

Step 3: The wrappers hung down over the bottom, so I glued those down and then cut a circle of scrapbook paper & glued that over the wrappers.

Step 4: I found a matching piece of scrap ribbon to tie around the candy canes & glued it in place.

Step 6: I then found a bunch of artificial poinsettias in a box of unused Christmas decorations & used a wire cutter to cut them down to size. Cute, isn’t it? Hopefully someone notices it this year. (If not, my total cost for the project was less than $2)

    Very cute and thrifty! It is my goal in life to one day be the kind of woman/mom who crafts her own stylish home decor. Until then, I'll just enjoy the reading about how other people do it.

    I was thinking for a temporary vase you could get a wide mouth glass or jar and put the candy canes inside with the hook part going over the side. Just put your flowers in the middle and it would look very Christmassy. You could even eat the canes from the back or after Christmas!
