Cristina Crafts: Candy Cane Vase

Materials Required

  • Cylindrical vase or clean empty can
  • Two sided tape (found at most hardware or scrapbooking stores)
  • Rubber band
  • Candy canes
  • Wide ribbon (must be wider than rubber band)
  • Roses


  1. Wrap the two sided tape around the vase/can once approximately halfway down the vase/can. (The two sided tape will help keep the candy canes from sliding out from under the rubber band.)
  2. Slide rubber band around the vase/can.
  3. Begin inserting the candy canes behind the rubber band.
  4. Tie the ribbon around the vase/can taking care to cover the rubber band with the ribbon.
  5. Fill with water and arrange roses.

Place Card Holders

Materials Required: • Small candy canes, three for each place card holder, unwrapped • Glue gun • Index cards or other heavy paper for the labels • Pens • Ribbon, optional

  1. Place a dot or small stripe of glue along the side of one candy cane and press the second candy cane against the first. Hold for a few seconds until the glue has cooled.
  2. Glue the third candy cane to the back of the first two so that the holders can stand on their own.
  3. If using ribbon, now is the time to add a little bow around the three candy canes.
  4. Make place cards or food labels out of small tags cut from index cards, or other heavy paper, and pens.
  5. Place finished cards in the candy cane place card holders.
