DIY Candy Cane Vase
Here is what you need:
Approximately 28 Candy Canes
hot glue gun
1 empty and clean 15oz can
Step 1: Hot glue the candy canes around the can.
Step 2: Continue to glue candy canes around the can until completely covered.
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 5: I glued a matching bow on the front of the ribbon.
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)

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!
How many candy canes per can?
I love it hopefully we can make some for Veterans this year for Christmas i need to know what size can did you use so i can get our group to start saving them.
What a wonderful idea!! I believe it was a 14.5 oz can that I used for this project. 🙂
