Candy Stick Vase
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

This simple craft makes a colorful centerpiece for your holiday table or an easy gift your child can create for someone special on her list.

What you'll need

  • Aluminum can
  • Candy
  • Double-sided foam mounting tape
  • Ribbon
  • Plastic cup

How to make it

  1. To make one, first snugly wrap 3 or 4 rings of double-sided foam mounting tape around a clean, dry, and labelless aluminum can (ours was 15 ounces).

  2. Peel off the tape's protective covering to expose its second sticky side.

  3. One at a time, attach colorful individually wrapped candy sticks (available at candy shops; we used 26) to the tape, setting them as close together as possible and pressing them firmly in place.

  4. For a festive finish, tie a ribbon around the container. To use the vase for fresh flowers or plants, set a plastic cup inside the can as a liner before adding water.
